Lately, we have been using tofu as a burger patty when making burger for dinner. I used to buy organic veggie burger patties and they are so expensive (1 patty was more than a $1). Instead, I started making burger patties using organic tofu. I typically marinate tofu with salad dressing and the end result was decent.

For the past couple of weeks, I decided to marinate with indian spices and the result is soooo good. The burger patty came out spicy and tasty that we started eating it as an appetizer.

As I mentioned earlier, not all my recipes come out well (example, my Instagram rambling here)

So, if I’m sharing a recipe here, you can assume that it tastes good. If you love Indian food and want some spicy veggie burger patty, you should give this one a try.



  1. Remove the tofu from the package and press well to drain the water
  2. Place a heavy object on top of the tofu and let it sit for 30 minutes to drain the water completely (I keep my Instantpot on top of tofu covered in cloth)
  3. Once all the water is drained, cut the tofu into 8 pieces
  4. Combine all the other ingredients above in a bowl
  5. Marinate the tofu with the mix and let it sit for 30 minutes
  6. Pan fry the tofu for 5 minutes each side and serve

My burger contains 1 piece of the tofu patty, 1 spinach omlette, and cheese. If I have more time, I serve my burgers with over baked sweet potato french fries.
