I love a good burger but I get a bit bored with the traditional burger combos. So, I’ve created a new recipe for Spicy Lamb Burgers to make burgers exciting again! Serve with a side salad, avocado and some yoghurt dip.
Spicy Lamb Burgers
1kg minced lamb
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1-2 tbsp mango chutney
3cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 red chilli, de-seeded and finely chopped
¼ tsp ground turmeric
1 tsp coriander seeds, crushed
1 tsp cumin seeds, crushed
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Coconut oil, for brushing
flat bread or pitta bread, to serve (optional)
For the relish
6 ripe tomatoes, de-seeded and diced
200g full fat greek yoghurt
bunch of fresh coriander, roughly chopped
1 small red onion, finely chopped
Squeeze of lemon or lime juice
Place the minced lamb in a large mixing bowl and add the garlic, onion, mango chutney, ginger, chopped chilli, turmeric, crushed coriander and cumin. Season well with salt and pepper and mix by hand until combined.
Divide and shape the mixture into 8-10 burgers. Place the burgers on a cling film-covered tray and keep them in the fridge for at least 30 minutes (or if possible make the day before). Remove from the fridge a while before cooking to bring to room temperature. Brush with a little oil before barbecuing for about 5-6 minutes each side.
Mix together the tomatoes, yoghurt, coriander, onion and lemon or lime juice and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with the burgers, either inside the bread or as a dipping sauce and a large salad.
