  • Serve immediately with ketchup !! Enjoy it to the core !!
  • Note
  • Use fresh burger buns for best taste.
  • As per the actual recipe,u have to refrigerate the boiled potatoes for 6 hours.But i skipped that step.
  • I have used corn flakes powder instead of corn meal here. U can add corn meal if u have in hand.
  • I coated the patty twice in the batter & bread crumbs to make a crispy exterior.But make sure oil is in right temperature else patty will get burnt.
  • You can make the patties instantly instead of refrigerating it for 30 minutes.In that case,take a ball of dough and pat it to bring the shape and proceed as given above.
  • If u r planning to make this for parties,u can make the dough very well in advance and refrigerate it by tightly wrapping in sheet & keep it covered.This dough stays good for 2 days in refrigerator if properly stored.
  • Adjust the quantity of mayonnaise as per ur taste.You can also add keep some onion rings,tomato slices & cheese slices if u like.

Cook's Tip:
Precut vegetables, fruits and cheeses that you use frequently. Not only does it save you time, it encourages healthy eating.
If you’re using carrots and celery for your soup stock, just chop them up roughly and throw them in. No need to peel or cut leaves off as you’re just using them for flavor.
Freshly ground black pepper: So much more flavorful than pepper from the box. Just grind and savor
