Nowadays everyone is so concerned about one's Health and start on a diet without much interest and it finally leads to an outburst one day and we start eating more than normal. Junk foods (fried foods) are to be avoided normally but if we start avoiding these at home the week ends would end up in KFC, Mc Donalds, Pizza etc.

       If we prepare this at home, sometimes we will not able to match the taste but we can use fresh oil to make this fried items and stay healthy. Once in a while by preparing this feast at home it becomes a real treat for the family members.

      I have used Thyme in this recipe for flavour. You can use any herb of your choice or can use mix of some herbs also. Add garam masala if you do not have any herbs at home.You can use chicken with skin pieces also to make it more crunchy and crispy than this.This is an easy to make tasty burger. Try this at home, your kids are also going to love this.
