Though there are many ways of making a patty for chicken burger but my recipe consists of chicken pulsed into fine with the help of food processor and mixed with other herbs and spices , but this recipe has a small twist. I have added raw grated and finely chopped veggies, so that it goes well with the kids too.
My daughter loves chicken burger , but the veggies inside doesn’t go well with her sensibilities. Once my mind diverts, she slowly removes the veggies and have in a hurry so that her mom doesn’t remind her about this no “veggie affair syndrome. ”
