Week 2, Day 2
Theme : Burgers
My theme for this week is burgers, yesterday it was a Burger Chat , today we shall enjoy a corn burger. The Patty is made with fresh corn kernels and coated with cornflakes. One can make the patty's and serve without burgers too. This is a burger that I made for myself , just one burger as no one was interested in eating any kind of bread. You could double or triple the recipe according to your family.
I have observed that now we get only American corn which is very sweet. Since I wanted just corn I had to spice up the Patty as well as the burger, else it would have tasted on the sweeter side. I had picked some sauces from Tenirife and these sauces were just a perfect addition to both the things. I understand that these sauces are not available here, I tasted them without any accompaniment . The tomato sauce is more or less like tobasco , but spicier. So you could use a mix of tobasco and red chilly sauce. The other sauce is a avocado sauce, so that can be substituted by making a avocado sauce from avocados, green chilly , mint and vinegar. So let me get to the recipe now..
1 burger bun
1 corn Patty
11/2 cups boiled corn kernels
1/4 boiled potato
Chilly sauce to taste
Oregano just a pinch
Black pepper , just a pinch
Salt to taste

Placing the butter side down , toast the bun lightly.
Place the bottom slice on the counter, place shredded cabbage or lettuce.

Drizzle both the sauces over this and finally place a cheese slice.
Finish by sealing the burger with the top piece.
