3 (750 g) large potatoes, julienned
2 tsp (10 ml) medium curry powder

To Serve

4 vegan rolls
160 g cucumber, thinly sliced
½ (100 g) red onion, thinly sliced
4 (264 g) Quorn Vegan Hot and Spicy Burgers, cooked according to the packet instructions

Chana Masala Sauce

Heat the oil in a saucepan over low heat. Add the onions, garlic, ginger and chilli and sauté for 2 minutes.

Stir in the cumin, turmeric, sugar, tamarind, chilli powder and tomato purée and sauté for 1 minute.

Turn the heat up to medium; stir in the stock, chickpeas and coconut cream and simmer for 10 minutes.

Stir in the coriander and lemon juice and season to taste.

Vegan Mayo

Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Season to taste.

Curried Fries

Heat the oil for deep-frying to 180 °C. Fry the julienned potatoes in batches until golden and crisp, about 3-4 minutes per batch.

Drain on kitchen paper and sprinkle with the curry powder. Season with salt.

To Serve

Cut open the bread rolls and spread a generous amount of vegan mayo. Add a layer of cucumber and onions to the base of each bun.

Top off with a crisp burger patty and chana masala sauce on top. Serve the burgers with curried fries on the side.

TIP: If you prefer not eating tofu, then simply replace the mayo with guacamole or store-bought vegan mayonnaise.
