Burgers with crispy Potato Wedges

A heartfelt thank you goes out to Mr. Anonymous, the first person to actually think of putting a meat patty and a compendium of assortments (cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and onions being the most common) between a bun (Genius!). Little did he know that what he had just created, would end up being a global fast-food phenomenon. Beef or Vegetarian, Tofu or Chicken, the options are endless. Here’s a time-tested recipe that will make you forget all about the famous Big burger you get at McRonalds (yes, the spelling mistake is deliberate).Unlike the aforementioned Big burger, this patty has a rich flavor and the tartar sauce gives your sandwich the extra kick.

Ingredients for Patty

  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 kg beef, chicken or mutton
  • 3-4 bread (soaked and drained)
  • 3-4 tbsp BBQ sauce
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp mustard sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

Ingredients for Tartar Sauce

  • 2 tbsp pickle relish or pickled cucumber (chopped)
  • 4 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1/4 tsp mustard sauce
  • salt to taste
  • lemon or vinegar 1 tbsp


  1. Mix all the ingredients for the patty and divide the mix into 2-inch balls
  2. Pat each ball into a circular disc abut 4 inches in diameter
  3. Fry these patties in a pan (you can also choose to grill them) until they are cooked to your desired consistency
  4. Place each patty in a bun and make sure you apply the tartar sauce on both sides
  5. You can additionally garnish it with cheese, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, mustard, and BBQ sauce

Yikes! I almost forgot about the crispy wedges. So here’s how you make these:

Ingredients for Wedges

  • 3-4 medium potatoes (parboiled)
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp corn flour
  • 1/4 tsp paprika powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper powder
  • salt to taste


  1. Cut the potatoes into 1/2-inch wedges
  2. Mix the rest of the dry ingredients into a powder and sprinkle it evenly over the potatoes, making sure you coat all the sides properly
  3. Deep-fry in oil (you could try baking them but I’m not sure whether it will work or not)
  4. Serve without delay
