Burger patties are typically made with potatoes in India called Aloo ki Tikki and served with chutneys, not burger buns. I tried bean burger patties with chutneys, it turned out to be super delicious! I love homemade beans, but you can also use canned beans. Soak the beans overnight, rinse and cook with fresh water in a slow cooker on high for 5-8 hours (depending on the quantity and type of beans) or in a pressure cooker for less than an hour. Soaking makes them easier to digest. Red kidney beans, black beans, and chickpeas are good for making burger patties. Pinto and adzuki beans go well with this Adzuki and Pinto Bean Burger Patties by Renu Agrawal.
