Olive oil to drizzle
1 No. Tomato sliced into roundels

Instructions for the Coleslaw

1. Mix all ingredients for the coleslaw. Refrigerate for an hour to chill

Instructions for the Patty

1. Heat olive oil in a pan. Sauté the beans, cabbage, carrots and chopped green chilies for 2 minutes.  The vegetables should retain their crunch.
2. Mash the potatoes. Add in the crumbled paneer.  Add in green chilli ginger paste.  Add in the sauted veggies. Season with salt.
3. Add the lemon juice, garam masala powder and chopped coriander leaves. Mix well. (please increase / decrease quantity of chillies / chilli paste and lemon juice as per your liking)
4. Shape the mixture into round patties.
5. Now, heat a non-stick pan with vegetable oil. Grill the patties on both sides lightly.

(Note: since we’ve not used corn flour, nor bread crumbs in this to bind, the patties tend to break easily.  So carefully grill them).

6. Keep aside.

Instructions to serve

1. Wash the greens.
2. Arrange them on a plate.  Arrange the tomato slices and onion slices on it.
3. Drizzle olive oil, balsamic glaze (if using), salt and pepper on it.
4. Place the warm grilled patty on it.  Top with 1 tbsp chilled coleslaw on top.
5. Serve immediately.
