The Black Bean and Caramelised Onion Burger is an awesome snack, which brings together all-time favourite Mexican ingredients like black beans with chatpata desi flavours to make a dashing treat!

The cutlet is easy to make but super tasty. You can make it even better by adding carrots and capsicum to the cutlet mixture, if you wish.

The blend of spices and spice powders including chaat masala gives this cutlet a really exciting flavour, which is moderately spicy. You can alter the spice levels according to your taste. Just make sure you drain the black beans well so that the cutlet mixture’s consistency is right.

This tongue-tickling cutlet teams up with caramelised onions and burger must-haves like mayonnaise, lettuce, etc., to make a scrumptious burger that everyone will love.
