What’s in Masala Veggie Burger?

This burger patty has masala and veggies – just as the name suggests. There are garbanzo beans or chickpeas, pinto beans, white beans, and some black-eyed peas. You don’t have to add all the beans to make this patty.

The best combination is chickpeas and pinto beans or kidney beans. I have used pressure cooked beans in this recipe. Veggies used are: onions, garlic, cilantro, little cauliflower rice, and sliced jalapeños. You can totally skip the jalapeños but don’t skip the herbs.

The most important element is the masala, which definitely includes a combination of dry and wet spices. For a traditional Indian flavor, I have added Indian curry masala powder and curry paste. Thanks to Seeti’s ready-to-use, starter sauces, this burger comes together real quick.

The strong Chana masala sauce adds a spicy punch to the masala veggie burger. But if you don’t have Seeti’s sauces handy, feel free to use the bhuna masala or Indian curry paste in the recipe. But do add this paste for that strong masala flavor. 

Seeti’s Starter Sauces and Onepot Meal Kits:  

Seeti sauces
Disclosure: I have received a box-full of Seeti starter curry sauce to try and review. All the opinions about these products are purely mine. I was not compensated for my time.

Seeti is the brainchild of a group of enthusiastic individuals who bring together the right passion for curry, Indian food, culture, and culinary journey. The company now offers two types of products – starter sauces and one-pot meal kits. The sauces are cooked curry or pilaf sauces/pastes, packed in vacuum-sealed bags and serves 3-4. The meal kit is specifically designed for all instant pot users, who love to whip up a quick curry or pilaf by using the ingredients in the kit.

My experience with Seeti: 

Ingredients of the Seeti masala burger

The first starter sauce I tried was the sahi paneer sauce and it was really good. I usually don’t like store bought sauces because of the amount of oil and preservatives used. But Seeti’s sauces smelled and tasted really fresh. The nutty and lightly spiced Sahi paneer sauce was mildly sweet and spicy, and resulted in a thick, creamy paneer curry that tasted just as a gourmet style curry. The second type of sauce that I tried was this Chana masala sauce, which is spicy and flavorful yet not too much spicy to burn your mouth. It’s subtle yet robust and extremely delicious.

  • If you don’t have Seeti’s sauces handy, use your own Indian curry paste or bhuna masala.
