Fry’s Burgers with Fragrant Rice
1 packet Fry’s Vegetarian Burgers (Traditional, Chicken-Style or Spiced)
1 tbs Oil
2 cups Rice (preferably basmati)
1 Cinnamon Stick, broken in half
4 Cardamom Pods
½ White Onion, diced
4 cups Water
1 tsp Ground Turmeric
½ tsp Salt
3 Red Chillies de-seeded and thinly sliced (optional)
Raita (yoghurt sauce):
½ cup x Yoghurt, plain and unsweetened (preferably soy based)
½ Red Onion, diced
¼ tsp Sugar
½ tsp Salt
1 tsp Cumin seeds
10-12 Black peppercorns
½ cup Coriander, chopped
Rinse the rice until water runs clear, drain and set aside.
Heat oil on a medium heat; add cinnamon stick and cardamom pods, leave for 2 minutes before adding diced onion. Stir continuously until onions are sautéed. Add drained rice, ground turmeric, salt, half of the sliced chillies and water, stirring well. Allow to boil, then lower to a simmer, place lid over saucepan and cook for 20 minutes. Once cooked, gently stir rice to see if all the water has absorbed. If not, cook for a few more minutes.
Cook Fry’s Vegetarian Burgers according to box instructions, while the rice is cooking.
To make the Raita, peel cucumber and scoop out the seeds. Cut the flesh into bite-sized pieces and set aside. Put the yoghurt in a bowl and beat with a fork until smooth. Add sugar and salt and mix well.
Preheat a small heavy based saucepan over a medium-high heat. Once hot, turn off the heat, before adding cumin seeds and peppercorns. Stir for 40-50 seconds, until they release their aroma. Remove from the pan and leave to cool for 5 minutes, and then crush in a mortar with a pestle, or on a hard surface with a rolling pin.
Add the cucumber, red onion and spices to the yoghurt mixture and stir well.
To serve; place rice in a plate, top with the burger, followed by the raita mixture. Sprinkle with coriander and remaining chopped chillies. OPTIONAL: Add baked Poppadoms on the side.
