Mix the yogurt sauce in the salad mix and keep it aside.
In a large bowl mix in the mashed potatoes, cooked sago, minced green chillies, garam masala, grated ginger, fresh coriander and salt.  Mix well. 
Take some potato mixrue and make round patties.
Heat  2 TBSP of oil in a skillet and fry the patties bothe sides untill golden brown.

To assemble the burger:
