Serving suggestion
Remember if you are using an all vegetable burger it may soften and lose shape bc the binding agent is not as strong as a soy burger for example.

Serve these masala patties on burgers, wraps, pitas or on salads.

You can marinade the veggie burgers for a minimum of one hour up to a max of three hours.
You can vary the marinade by adding or omitting certain spices/seasonings.
