Mini Aloo Tikki Burgers With Caramlized Onions with Lemon(Nimbu) Soda

I was supposed to post this last week, but due to hectic schedule at work did not get a chance to publish the post so here it goes.

In my house hold Super bowl gets the same level of celebration like say Diwali or Pongal. Men in my house including my 3 year old are obessed with football. My kids can name all the teams, their best players and get exicted/sad when the team they choose either does a touch down or looses one, I on the other hand just watch it for the advertisement and half time show. We always have a huge crowd on Super Bowl. Most of the time its standard food like chips and Salsa and Pizza. But this time I decided to make Mini Aloo Tikki Burgers and today made a sample batch must say they were delicious. Best part of it all of this can be done a head and bugers can be assembled according own taste on the game day. This burger gets it unique taste because of caramalized onions.

For Aloo Tikki (Makes about 6-8 tikki's)
6 small sized potatoes boiled
1 green chili
1/2 tbsp rock salt (kala Namak)
1/2 tbsp Aam Choor (dried mango powder)
1/2 tbsp r.chili powder
1/2 tbsp chaat masala
handful of corriander leaves
peas/carrot optional
salt according to taste
1 cup bread crumbs (ground into fine powder)

1.Mix all the ingredients in a bowl
2. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
2. Now lay this mixture flat into a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spread the mix evenly and top with a nice coat of bread crumbs.
3. Allow the tikki to bake for 15 minutes and then change the setting to broil and allow it to broil for 5 min.
4. once done allow it too cool and then with a cookie cutter cut out circles.

If not in the over cut into circles and shallow fry both sides on a tava.

For topping
Caramalized Onions
2 Big Red Onions cuts vetrically, heat a tbsp of olive oil in a pan when hot add the sliced onions and allow it to brown, after 3 minutes turn and brown the other side. Caramilized onion have a sweet taste and compliment the burger.
Stone ground mustard,tobasco sause, ketchup, tomatoes, Sea salt, lemon (optional), Cheese (cut with cookie cutter into slices)

Aloo Tikki

For bread, I used whole grain bread and cut them into circles using the same cookie cutter. Shallow fried bread on both sides using pam.

Now arrange the table with bread, patties and all the toppings. Each individual can build the burger according to his/hers own taste.
Serve with a cold chilled spicy Nimbu Soda (Lemon Soda)
Nimbu Soda

1 club soda
a pinch of rock salt/chaat masala/pepper/sugar.
Juice of 1 big lemon. Mix all of the above and serve chill.
