The Challenge: Curry Burger
Curry burgers! Curry burgers! Curry burgers are so darn good.
Our curry burgers are made from a sweet potato + chickpea blend. The curry burger is a delicious patty that we top with basil + curry aioli, arugula, mango + cabbage slaw, and all wrapped in a warm roti. It is d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!
The curry burger is a delicious blend of sweet potatoes, chickpeas, quinoa, poblano, curry powder, basil, and much more! This burger is epic! We aren’t going to stop there though. We drench it in a basil/curry aioli that is to die for. Then, we top with spicy rocket lettuce + a delicious slaw with mango, red cabbage, carrot, cilantro that is a great fresh blend that adds texture and freshness to this dish.
Finally, we wrap it all in roti…cuz roti is amazing. Be careful with roti, though. A lot of the roti that you can buy at stores will contain butter or dairy. We have a great ethnic store in the Atlanta area that carries a vegan version. This dish will also be great with a bun or even some nice ciabatta or bread.
