Doughnut Burger (Luther Burger) : Recipe

Unfortunately at the time of making this the shops near me didn’t have any normal glazed donuts so I just opted for this one instead.

A Luther Burger, or doughnut burger (among several naming variations), is a hamburger or cheeseburger with one or more glazed doughnuts in place of the bun.

YIELD 2 burgers

INGREDIENTS

For The Burger

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • Ground Beef (80% lean)
  • 1 Egg

Topping

  • 6 slices quality smokey bacon
  • 4 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 2 glazed donuts

Extras for Candied Bacon

  • Maple syrup
  • Brown sugar

INSTRUCTIONS

Burger

  1. In a bowl add the Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt and pepper in a large bowl and gently mix for 10 seconds
  2. Now add the mince and mix for 60 seconds
  3. Break an egg in to the bowl as this is your binding issue and mix well
  4. Let the mince sit for around 5 minutes
  5. Form your hamburger patties.
  6. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Add the burgers and cook until desired temperature, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Candied Bacon

Its up to you if you want to make sweet bacon, normal bacon tastes just as good with this

  1. Fry bacon in a hot pan until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Set aside.
  2. Combine the maple syrup, and brown sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Return bacon to the skillet, brush with the glaze, and turn. Cook glazed side down for 2 minutes over low heat. Glaze, turn, and cook for an additional 2 minutes over low heat.
  4. Repeat until all of the glaze is used and serve immediately.

The Donuts

  1. Cut the donuts in half and lightly butter the cut sides
  2. Place the cut sides down on a very warm frying pan and keep until slightly crispy 

End Product

I added some cheddar at the bottom just to be different 🙂
  1. Place burger patties on glazed donuts, as the buns.
  2. Top each burger with bacon and two slices of cheese

Enjoy

An attempt at Chef Ajay Kumar (Swadish Restaurant) Tandoori Chicken Tikka Recipe

I thought since the first time went ok, let’s try another recipe from Chef Ajay’s YouTube channel.

This time round my fiancee and I decided to try the Tandoori Chicken Tikka, so we had to watch make sure we had everything (a quick trip to Tesco was needed) and then setup and get ready to watch and prepare at the same time as the video.

We watched the first part of the video and left the marinated chicken for 24 hours, as we wanted it to be nice and tender.

Since we didn’t have a Tandoor in the flat, we opted for the oven and actually left it for 40mins which for us was perfect.

This was our finished attempt.

From start to finish this smelled really good, and also tasted really good.

The final result was AMAZING!! for me the chicken had the perfect flavour and was very light. I had loads this night, and didn’t feel that bloated way after it all.

An attempt at Chef Ajay Kumar (Swadish Restaurant) Dal Tadka

Chef Ajay Kumar

One of my fav Indian restaurant’s in Glasgow is Swadish.

You can see my blogs and vlogs from some of my visits, by typing Swadish in the search box on my blog.

Like most people who are currently at home due to the pandemic, my fiancee and I decided to start trying to make some dishes at home.

Chef Ajay recently started a YouTube channel and we thought let’s see what we could try, and if we have all or most of the ingredients in the flat.

We decided to try the Dal Tadka or Dhal.

So we slowly watched and started preparing and following the video!

A few of the items that Ajay was using we didn’t have in the kitchen, but we had alternatives that we decided to use.

We didn’t have cumin seeds but we had grounded cumin , and we didn’t have curry leaves so we used grounded curry powder.

Following Ajay’s video we found it very easy to follow and the smell from start to finish was amazing, we both couldn’t wait to try it 🙂

This was our finished attempt.

As you can see its….kind of close…but it did taste very very good.

We both want to try this again, and know how we could improve what we did so our next attempt will be closer to Chef Ajay’s version…..well thats the aim 🙂

For a first attempt we were very happy with our result, and as I said we know what we need to do to improve on what we did this time for next time.

Please do try this, as its a very nice dish and very tasty 🙂
