Homemade pork burger

While my younger son sings his affections for Indian cuisines, my older one proposes a new menu every now and then, mostly western. Currently he has a huge Burger fever and luckily my younger one enjoys them just as much as his brother.

Now burger is a family favourite especially for midnight cravings, and since I am so used to whipping these up quite late at night, I have a super delicious and easy recipe to share with you which comes with the classic gang of melted cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and homemade patty!

So if you live a bit out of town with scarce delivery services (like I do), and if you dislike the frozen patties, you must try this recipe…Once again I feel proud and happy to be sharing yet another one of my mother’s recipes.

Here goes…


  • 6 burger buns
  • 400gms pork lion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 red onion
  • a small bunch coriander
  • black pepper, according to taste
  • salt, according to taste
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup grated cheddar
  • a few strips lettuce
  • 1 sliced tomatoes
  • jalapenos (optional)
  • ketchup (optional)
  • mayonnaise (optional)
  • mustard (optional)
  • butter or olive oil



  1. In a food processor, blend together pork lion (roughly chopped), onion, garlic, coriander, salt & black pepper.
  2. Scoop out about 2 tablespoons of the blended mixture and use your fingers & palms to form a flat rounded patty.
  3. Dunk this patty in beaten raw egg.
  4. Then roll the patty over breadcrumbs.
  5. To cook right away, heat up a grill pan and add some butter or oil.
  6. First grill the buns just so they are warm enough and set aside.
  7. Then grill the patty on medium-low heat for about 4-5minutes on each side or until you see grill marks. (Add more butter when ever the apn gets dry)
  8. Place some grated cheddar over the top of the cooked patty and flip it for just about a minute so the cheese gets heated and begins to melt. Quickly remove from the pan, straight over a bun.
  9. To keep the patty for later use, store them one on top of the other with butter paper in between. This can be frozen for about a month.
  10. Assemble your burger with your choice of spreads & sauces and vegetables.
