A patty in a burger can be made using any combination of veggies. We were on a short trip to Las Vegas when I had this red kidney patty burger there. It was yummy in every bite. Since then I wanted to try this delicious veg burger. Didn’t had courage or time to try this as I was not sure of the outcome. 😀 But trust me the outcome was more than expected. 🙂 Happy Me and Happy Tummy. 🙂

Though I rarely eat Burger but I always loved the burger patty 😀 During my graduation days me and my friends, we frequently used to visit McDonald’s as it was kind of our second adda after Vyanjan (a fast food joint). 🙂 We always end up ordering Mac Alu-tikki burger as it was one of our favorite and the most cheapest one. 😀 After graduation I moved to another city for post graduation and I hardly remember having burger after that. Not sure whether because it was due to not having those friends to share the burger or some other reason. But I had chicken burger few times at KFC. 😉 Though that’s too much for me as I can’t eat that whole by myself.

There are few dishes which EVERYONE should try at least once (Obviously we Indian are fond of it, so exclude us from the “everyone’s” list 😛 ) In my knowledge pretty much EVERY Indian restaurants in USA have Tandoori Chicken in their menu. I love going to Indian buffets just because they serve tandoori chicken. 😛 This is one of the dish I probably had countless times whether it is a buffet or made to order. If I am going to a Indian restaurants this is always my first order. 😀


I have made Tandoori chicken several times and every time got different taste because I just can’t follow the same recipe every time. 😀 Needless to say, I am no expert in cooking Tandoori chicken but this recipe is really really amazing with crispy outside and melt in mouth, juicy from inside. Heaven in each bite. 🙂 😀 Do try once and let me know your feedback.
