1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ginger, finely grated
1 teaspoon green chillies, crushed

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
1 teaspoon cumin powder

Method

1) Boil the potatoes with the skin still on. Drain and allow to cool. Remove the skin and finely grate the potatoes
2) Place the bread in a food processor or blender and process to make fine breadcrumbs.
3) Mix together the potatoes, bread, and all the other burger ingredients.
4) Divide the mixture into 6 servings. Spread a little oil on your hands, roll the mixture into a ball then pat it into a burger shape. Coat the burger with semolina.
5) Add a tablespoon of oil to a non-stick frying pan, fry the burgers on a medium heat for about 5 - 7 minutes on each side – turning only once, very gently – until the burgers are golden brown.
6) Place on kitchen paper to remove any excess oil.
7) Lightly toast the wholemeal burger buns. Place a burger on the bottom half of each bun. Add layers of lettuce, sliced tomatoes and cucumber. Spread a teaspoon of mayonnaise onto the other half of each burger bun and place this on top.

Suggestions

You can also add a layer of sliced onions.
