Burgers aren't traditionally Indian, but we're all partial to a lamb kebab, so this is our spin!
1 small onion, quartered
4cm piece fresh ginger
4 large garlic cloves
20g fresh coriander, stalks and leaves
1tsp red chilli powder
450g lamb mince
¾tsp ground cumin
1½tsp garam masala
1tsp salt
1 large egg
2 slices white bread, processed to crumbs
2tbsp oil, for greasing
Cottage Delight Black Garlic Mayonnaise, to serve
6 seeded flatbreads
Salad, to serve

Cooking Method

  1. Using a hand blender, roughly chop the onion, ginger, garlic and coriander by pulsing, or chop them all by hand. Place into a bowl with the lamb mince, add the cumin, garam masala, salt, egg, chilli powder and breadcrumbs and mix well.

  2. Shape into six burgers and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes or until you are ready to cook them. Take them out of the fridge 30 minutes before you start cooking.

  3. Preheat the grill to high. Place the burgers on a well-oiled baking sheet and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side. They can also be cooked in an oiled non-stick pan for 8-10 minutes, turning halfway.

  4. While the burgers are cooking, heat the flatbreads in the oven for the last 3-4 minutes of the cooking time.

  5. Serve within flatbreads, top with salad and a dollop of Black Garlic Mayonnaise.
