Makes 6 burgers

A unique 'desi' twist to the regular chicken burger, this one's flavour is intensified by the addition of some special ingredients and a deliciously creamy sauce that elevates the burger to something truly spectacular. 

Ingredients for Burger Patties
500 gm
chicken mince
red onion, grated
(squeeze out and discard the excess moisture)
1/4 cup
green onions, chopped
1 tbsp
1 tbsp
lemon juice
1 tsp
garlic paste
1 tsp
ginger paste
1 tsp
1 tsp
red chilli powder
1 tsp
paprika powder
1/2 tsp
tandoori masala
1/2 tsp
garam masala
1/2 tsp
black pepper powder
1/2 tsp
cumin powder
1/2 cup
dry breadcrumbs
Ingredients for Sauce
1/4 cup
1/4 cup
thick plain yoghurt
1 tbsp
chopped fresh mint
1/4 tsp
ground cumin
salt & pepper to taste
Other Ingredients
Burger buns, split
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
fresh coriander
tomato slices
cucumber slices
lettuce leaves

Put the mince in a bowl, add all the remaining ingredients and mix well to combine. Refrigerate for an hour or up to overnight for the flavours to fully develop and for the mince to be easier to handle and shape.

Prepare the sauce by mixing all the sauce ingredients, taste and adjust. Refrigerate for at least an hour.

Divide the mince mixture into 6 and form round patties. Grill these until cooked on both sides or pan fry in a lightly oiled pan until cooked through on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side.

Assemble the burgers and drizzle some of the sauce over them just before serving.

Enjoy! :)


These burgers made me so happy--they were perfect :) Smelled wonderful and tasted even better. I'm tempted to use the same recipe to make kebabs or koftas for an upcoming dinner. What do you think??

Thanks for the lovely feedback, yes I often make koftas out of this same mixture and they turn out really well too.
