Method

  • Step 1

    Begin by heating 2 saucepans of boiling water on a high heat and adding the sweet potato chunks to one and the diced carrot and fine beans to the other. Boil for 12-15 minutes or until the potatoes and carrots are soft.

  • Step 2

    Meanwhile peel the onion and chop it into big chunks. Add it to your ninja and use the chopping function to dice it.

  • Step 3

    Add it to a separate saucepan on a medium with a tablespoon of olive oil and sauté for a few minutes.

  • Step 4

    Now add the ground cumin, garam masala, ground coriander, curry paste and salt. Combine.

  • Step 5

    Pour the chickpeas into your ninja and pulse for a few seconds until they are crushed. Then add them straight to the pan along with the peas and combine with the spices.

  • Step 6

    Drain the sweet potatoes and place them in your Ninja. Blend until a puree is formed and then add it to the pan with the rest of the ingredients.

  • Step 7

    Drain the carrots and fine beans and add them to the pan too. Combine.

  • Step 8

    Take the pan off of the heat and stir through the gram flour and remaining tablespoon of olive oil.

  • Step 9

    When the mixture is cool enough mould it into approximately 9 burger patties and place them on a lined baking tray. Put in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes to firm up.

  • Step 10

    Preheat oven to 180c and using a brush coat the burgers with a little more olive oil.

  • Step 11

    Cook in the oven for 10 minutes before turning them over and cooking for a further 10 minutes.

  • Step 12

    Meanwhile prepare the coconut dip by combining the coconut yoghurt, chopped cucumber and mint in a bowl.

  • Step 13

    In a separate bowl combine the diced tomatoes, red onion and coriander.

  • Step 14

    Cook the rice and load it on the plates along with the rocket.

  • Step 15

    Add the burgers when cooked and top with coconut dip, mango chutney and the tomato and red onion mix.
