Mushroom Veggie Burger is a spicy vegetarian burger, layered with a spicy mushroom stir fry, crunchy, creamy coleslaw and fresh slices of tomato and onions with a dash of chilli or sriracha sauce for an extra spice!!

Everybody loves burgers.  The more popular ones are chicken burgers or fish burgers and for meat lovers , you have the hamburgers.  For the vegetarians, choice of burgers outside is limited to a potato patty sandwiched between two halves of a burger bun with some mayo or any other sauce to flavor it!!

Most often, whenever I have plenty of time, I prepare potato patties(with lots of vegetables) like spicy potato tikkis or aloo tikkis, served with ketchup or green coriander chutney, for an evening snack to enjoy with my tea.  If I have burger buns lying in my pantry, I prepare extra tikkis and enjoy these as a burger filling to make vegetarian burgers for dinner!!

Today, I had two packets of mushrooms lying in my refrigerator, so I decided to make my mushroom stir fry which I often make for my family, as a filling for my burgers.  I make it a point to make lots of it as my two boys love to eat the leftover stir fry on the side!!

Making the burgers involves only 3 steps; making the coleslaw (recipe here), preparing the mushroom stir fry and assembling the burgers. If the coleslaw is ready (it takes only 10 minutes to make and needs about ½ an hour to chill and develop the flavors in the refrigerator or if you are short on time, you can eat it right away), mushroom veggie burgers can be ready in 10 to 15 minutes.

Toppings for the burgers can range from cucumber slices, ketchup, jalapeno slices, mustard sauce, olives, grated carrots etc.
