Barbeque Vegetable Burgers with Coleslaw

I am a big fan of barbeque flavor. I can have it sandwiches, pizza and burgers. Burgers are a favorite too and are made whenever we miss US a little bit more than usual. I have been wanting to post these burgers for a long time. Its a tasty and moist vegetable patty with some barbequed onions and peppers and some creamy coleslaw all encased in a fluffy bun. In India you get some delicious eggless spiced mayonnaise's too. You can use a burger mayo with cabbage as well instead of the coleslaw. Be sure to wash the vegetables properly. Peel the beets and carrots before grating them. Portions below make 12 burgers.


12 burger buns
3 tomatoes sliced thin
12 cheese slices

For the patty:

1 cup grated beetroot
1 cup grated carrot
4 large potatoes (about 4 cups of mashed potatoes)
1 + 2 tablespoons oil
1 medium onion
1 inch knob of ginger
2 teaspoons chili paste
2 tablespoon chopped jalapenos (for a tangy spicy kick)
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon chili powder
Black pepper

For the topping:

2 large onions, sliced
2 large green peppers, julienned
1/2 cup barbeque sauce (or more if you like)
1 tablespoon oil
Black Pepper


4 cups shredded cabbage
1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
1 teaspoon chili sauce (for added heat)

Heat a thick bottomed and add a tablespoon of oil. Add the onions and peppers and cook them on low heat till the cook down completely, about 10-15 minutes and then add the salt pepper and barbeque sauce. 
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the coleslaw. Keep it refrigerated till you are ready to use it.  

To make the patty:

Boil the thoroughly washed potatoes in a pressure cooker for 2 whistles. Let it stand for 5 minutes on low flame and then cool. When cooled, peel and mash the potatoes. Keep aside.
In the mean time, heat a tablespoon of oil in a large vessel and add the onions, chili paste and ginger to it. Next add the grated carrots and beets. Add salt, chili powder and black pepper. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water and cover. Cook on medium stirring occasionally for 15 minutes. Now add the mashed potatoes, oregano, jalapenos and mix well. Check for salt and spice. The color will be reddish because of the beets. Cool, make equal portions and form patties.
Heat a non-stick pan and add a couple of drops of oil to it. Cook the patties on the pan till they turn golden on each side. If you are making these for company, semi cook them and then finish them when you are ready to assemble the burgers. 

To Assemble:

Cut the burger buns and warm on a griddle / pan. On the base of the burger bun, put about 1 tablespoon of coleslaw. Next the tomatoes, then the patty followed by the cheese and finally a tablespoon of the barbequed onions and peppers. The patty and the onions will start to melt the cheese... Put the top of the bun and serve hot!
