This recipe is a great way to incorporate South Asian flavours into burgers. The cheese in the meat really helps keep the patties tender and flavourful. This is a healthy, quick and delicious meal that the whole family will enjoy!
For burger patties:
4 cloves garlic
1 inch piece ginger
1 medium cooking onion, quartered
8 sun dried tomato halves
1 cup fresh coriander
1 cup fresh mint leaves
2 slices bread, broken up
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Salt to taste
1 tsp each: garam masala, ground coriander, ground cumin
½ tsp: cayenne pepper, ground black pepper
1 lb (450g) ground chicken
4 hamburger buns
1 cup baby greens
4 slices each: cheese, tomato, red onion
4 tbsp green chutney
Combine all ingredients for patties, except ground chicken, in food processor. Process until minced. Add chicken and process again until everything is well blended. Transfer to a bowl, refrigerate covered for 1 hour.
When ready to grill, preheat barbecue to medium heat. With dampened hands, divide patty mixture into four equal portions. Shape them into smooth patties. Place on barbecue and grill for about 18-20 minutes, turning once, until patties are cooked through and lightly browned.
To assemble burgers, divide greens on bottom of buns, top with a grilled patty. Add cheese slice, onion and tomato over top. Spread chutney on top half of buns and place over top of burger.
