Breakfast, literally meaning "breaking the fast" of the night, is the first meal taken after rising from a full night's sleep. Nutritional experts have referred to breakfast as the most important meal of the day, citing studies find that people who skip breakfast are most likely to have problems with concentration, metabolism, and weight. So, never skip your breakfast. Breakfast foods are widely varies from country to country, even in one country it varies from region to region. But there should be a bowlful of whole grain Cereal or Wholegrain bread or anything of that sort, have some fruits or fruit juices, too.
In my household, it's mostly wholegrain bread made into sandwich or wholegrain cereal, like Oat or muesli with fruits. To make sandwich, there is another problem what to make for sandwich. I made vegetable patties that day for sandwich. It is easy-to-make and healthy as well with lots of vegetables in it. I saw at Srivalli's space this veggie burger and wanted to try it for long. Now everyone in my family has become fan of it. My daughter didn't even realize that she is eating a veggie burger. She loved it, so I wanted to share this recipe with you all.......

Ingredients : (for 1 burger)
Bread slices : 2/burger bun : 1
Onion slices : 2
Tomato slices : 2-3
Cucumber slices : 2-3
Tomato ketchup : 1 tsp.
Cheese slice : 1 (optional)
Green/Coriander chutney : 1-2 tsp.
For vegetable Pattie :
Boiled vegetable(potato, carrot, green beans, green peas) : about 2 cups
Ginger & garlic : 2 tsp.(grated/paste)
Green chilli : 1-2 (finely chopped-optional)
Salt to taste
Oil : 2 tblsp.
Corn flour : 2-3 tblsp.
Bread crumbs
Fresh coriander leaves (finely chopped)

Method :
  • To make patties : Boil all the vegetables and rinse out all the water. Mash them, check there should not be any lump. After mashing, if you feel there are little moisture left, then add corn flour to absorb the moisture(use corn flour if only you feel there is some moisture left). Add grated ginger and garlic, green chillies or red chilli powder, coriander leaves and salt. Mix well. Make flat round shaped patties from the mashed vegetable. Keep them aside.
  • To fry the patties : Take 1 tblsp. oil in a frying pan, sprinkle bread crumbs on one side and place bread crumb side of the pattie on oil and fry until brown. Sprinkle little bread crumb on top side and turn the pattie and fry until brown in medium flame. Same way, fry other patties.
  • To assemble the burger : Cut a burger bun into half and toast them lightly. Arrange lettuce leaves first if you have, then place the vegetable Pattie, spread some tomato ketchup, then place some cucumber, onion and tomato slices. Finally spread some green coriander chutney and place the last piece of bread on top. You can add also cheese clice if you like in between. Go for whatever you like. Enjoy immediately.
