Swede burgers

Based on an Alan Rosenthal recipe. Makes 7-8 burgers. Don't worry if you don't have onion powder, you could add some very finely chopped onions instead.
Servings: 7


  • 200 g gram flour (chickpea flour)
  • 200 ml water
  • 350 g swede, peeled and grated
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
  • 1 tsp nigella seed
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 green chilli, chopped
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • tsp onion powder/granules
  • 4 tbsp chopped coriander
  • 4 tbsp chopped mint


  • Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl.
  • Heat a few tablespoons of light oil in a frying pan and add 1 tbsp of the swede burger mix to the pan.
  • If you have egg rings, you can use these to keep the burgers round and neat. Otherwise, shape into rough patties.
  • Fry until golden brown on one side, then flip over and cook the other side.
  • Remove from frying pan and serve.
  • A squeeze of lemon cuts through the oil. They are nice served with mint yoghurt.
