Next time you crave for a juicy burger, try these instead

While hands down, the vada pav makes for the quickest, wallet-friendly and 'the' best Indian burger,  the videshi burger still holds a special place in the hearts of many, and for a good reason. Burgers are the ultimate comfort food that can be taken from breakfast to dinner, and at their core, they only require two ingredients: meat/veggies and bun pavs.

In spite of their amazingly simple foundations, however, it's surprisingly easy to build a disappointing burger. A few simple (and common) mistakes can leave you with a burger that is dry, bland or flavours that don't compliment each other. If you're having trouble consistently making tender, juicy, flavourful burgers, worry not. Whether it’s burger night or not, we've put together some of the best vegetarian and non-vegetarian burger recipes that are just too tempting to miss. So say goodbye to take-away burgers and make way for these homemade burgers.
