I've had one of those weeks, where all I want to do is curl on my bed under my comfy blanket and call it a night and sleep off the whole weekend. A wish that I know I cannot fulfill, not this weekend. A busy weekend ahead :(

But I plan to have the next best thing going, a burger. A good burger to me is like that comfy blanket, it is comfort food when I am stressed out. What makes a good burger for you? For me, it is a delicious patty, preferably not too greasy, a bunch of veggies, a good bun (always!) and no ketchup. Yes, no ketchup. I am one of those ketchup haters of the world. I never understood ketchup, and I doubt I ever will. And this Jackfruit Burger is that and more!

I was super tempted to make a Jackfruit burger, because of 2 reasons - one, because it is Summer and Summer is definitely peak jackfruit season and you should always take full advantage of seasonal produce. And two, cause, ever since a cafe opened up near the house that sells Jackfruit Burger, I've wanted to have it! Those were reasons enough for me to attempt one last week, and may I say we were all very very impressed with this beauty.

The internet says the Jackfruit burger is very popular. Most of the recipes out there are for bbq pulled jackfruit style sandwiches, something I wasn't game for. So I made what I am comfortable with and what I love eating - a jackfruit patty. Making the patty is super easy and it only requires a few ingredients. The patty is made with shredded boiled jackfruit, boiled potatoes and spices. I totally Indianized the burger with Garam Masala, because that is what we Indians do. We add our spicy touch to any cuisine and make it our own. Then I formed the patties and shallow fried it. Can I say (without bragging), that it was yum.


The burger buns were homemade, and for the first time ever they ended up with that pretty brown color and they were soft, like burger buns are meant to be. I followed N'Oven's recipe to make the burger buns, I just eliminated the milk powder and it worked fine. I like Mayo in my burgers, so I used some vegan mayo. Use any sauce of your choice - mustard, sriracha, guac or even ketchup. Only after that, I may never speak to you again. Just kidding!

Have a burger filled weekend.
