A simple to make and very very delicious burger that will set your taste buds alight. You can bbq over charcoals for that flame grilled smoky flavour or grill or simply pan-fry. Best served in pitta bread pocket with a little green salad, onion and mint yoghurt dressing. A perfect party dish or starter. The lamb works really well with the sheek masala (available online from www.curryfusion.net) which is traditionally prepared with fresh Indian herbs and authentic whole ground spices. Alternatively, try the Garam or Gam or Jeera masala. Simply add the masala which has all the spices professionally put together. No need to add anything else.
600g of lean lamb (or substitute with chicken or pork)
1 Sheek masala fresh herbs & spice blend from Bipins (www.curryfusion.net)
1 small onion -finely chopped
1/4 of red bell pepper - finely chopped
Mint Yoghurt chutney
1 cup of natural yoghurt
1 tsp of mint sauce
2 tsp chopped fresh coriander leaves
1/2 crushed garlic clove

To make the mint dressing add the coriander, mint sauce and a freshly chopped chilli, finely chopped garlic. Season to taste.
