Batata Vada Burger

Batata Vada Burger: A scrumptious and filling burger filled with deep fried batata vada patty and juicy salad along with sweet tamarind and spicy green chutney. What could be tastier than this irresistible combination? Batata vada itself tastes wonderful and when combined with cheesy burger buns and lettuce it makes a nice filling and delicious meal.

This week for Blogging Marathon I will be sharing burgers recipes. For me, the whole process of making burger always seems a tough task and I do not prefer them making on weekdays. However weekend is perfect for such elaborate meals which would be definitely served as Brunch. So all three burgers that I am going to share were made on the weekends and totally adored by the family. When I was frying the batata vada my elder one started asking questions if you are making burgers why you are frying the vada and blah blah , all kinds of questions. But when she tasted this humble pairing of burger and batata vada she loved it. This burger is definitely a party pleaser and kids friendly recipe.
