  4. Step 4. Add boiled peas.

  11. Add water to make thin solution. It took me around 6-7 tablespoon of water.

  14. Step 11. Then coat it into bread crumbs.
  15. Step 12. Place the patty on hot skillet. Then lower the heat and fry it till it changes colour to golden. Flip it to another side. Like wise prepare other patties.
  16. Step 13. When patties are done. Take them out. Put some butter on skillet and roast the buns also on medium heat. Roast the other side but don't let the colour change.
