A simple dinner for kids who miss their McDonald’s.
- Minced Chicken : 500g.
- One Egg Yolk.

- Finely chopped Carrots.
- Chilly Powder.
- Turmeric Powder.
- Chopped Fresh Coriander.
- Dry Herbs.
- Flour : 1 tablespoon.
Minced chicken has a tendency to dry up. One of the most popular tricks is to add some mayonnaise to it. If you follow my recipes, you know that I prefer using the base ingredients.
So take the chicken mince, add in a yolk, lemon juice and oil. Using a spoon keep on stirring it till starts looking like a cohesive paste. Keep aside.
Melt butter and saute the carrots in it. When they have softened, add the chilly, turmeric and dry herbs. Season with salt. A little over seasoned is good. A touch more spicy is very good. Add the coriander and cook on high heat. Our end goal is to remove as much moisture as possible.
Add the flour and switch off the heat. Stir in the flour so it creates a surface on all the carrots. When the cooked carrots have cooled down, add them to the chicken paste and mix well.
Refrigerate for a couple of hours. This will have a very good impact on the overall cohesiveness of the paste and the flavor as well.
Make into patty shapes and cook on a hot grill. There is no need to add any oil to the pan.
Cook both sides till they are fully cooked.
Burger buns, some condiments, cucumber, onion, tomato and a patty. Watch your kids eyes light up…priceless.
