Ingredients

  • 2 T olive oil (1 for adding to the patties; 1 for frying)
  • 14 oz green jackfruit (1 can drained and rinsed)
  • 1/3 cup chickpea flour (garbanzo flour also works)
  • 1/4 cup red onions (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger (grated)
  • 1/4 cup cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (use red chili powder for more spice)
  • 3 hamburger buns
  • 3 cups salad greens
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil (for mixing with the greens)
  • 1 pinch salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Boil the green jackfruit in enough water till fork tender. 
  • Drain the water and transfer to a food processor along with the chickpea flour, chopped onions, grated ginger, cilantro, curry powder, paprika, salt/pepper and a tablespoon of oil. Give a few pulses till everything comes together.
  • Take the patty mix out and place in a bowl. Add little more chickpea flour if the mix feels too sticky. Shape into patties (about 1/3 cup each) and chill for about 30 minutes in the fridge.
  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick pan or cast iron skillet; fry the patties for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain off excess oil.
  • Slather condiments on the bottom half of the burger bun; place the salad greens on top and then the patty. Add more salad greens if you wish. Cover with the top half of the burger bun. Enjoy!
