  • Prepare the mashed potatoes using dehydrated potatoes following the manufacturers instructions. Allow to cook to 40°F before using.
  • In a tilt skillet or flat top, saute the yellow onions in the oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and saute for 3-5 minutes. Add the curry powder and allow to cook for an additional 3-5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cook to 40°F before using.
  • In a large bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, sauteed onions/garlic, salt, eggs, chopped chick peas, diced potatoes, green onions, cilantro and flour. Once combined, use a 5-ounce portion scoop to portion out each patty on a sheet pan. Each sheet pan should fit 10 burgers. Using the back side of a spatula, flatten the tops of the burgers. Place into a 450° oven for 12-15 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160°F.
  • To serve, place each burger on a bun, top with sliced cheese, and 1 Tablespoon of the yogurt sauce.
