Now, i ve been wanting to recreate that burger experience at home , like forever, now. And the last month, Groovy Gourmets decided the September theme as burgers without the humdrum aloo patties. So, i grabbed the opportunity and made these burgers with black eyed beans patties. I did not bake the buns as i dint have the time to. But i do have a spectacular recipe here for burger buns. So, go ahead and bake them if you got the time. A burger with home baked buns has its own charm. We are not great fans of fries at home. So i just served my burger with some potato wafers.
