Tandoori Chicken Burgers With Creamy Chutney
This is a super simple chicken pattie/burger recipe, it can be made as large burgers for a main meal as listed, but it would also make great mini patties as a picky food for a party. The spice in the burgers is really nice and the flavour along with the moistness of the burgers is delicious in itself, but the creamy chutney just finishes them off nicely. I was unsure how the chutney with the yogurt would taste but it turned out really good. I used a mix of sweet mango along with a spicy hot mango chutney and we really enjoyed it.

800g Ground chicken
1 Cup fresh white breadcrumbs (I did not use any I did make mine with blendd whole breast so they held their shape well and would have been to dry with added breadcrumbs.)
2 Teaspoons ground cumin
2 Teaspoons ground coriander
1 Teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 Teaspoon garam masala (I used about 11/2 TSPS)
2 Tablespoons yoghurt
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 Clove garlic
1 Tablespoon parsley, finely chopped

Creamy Chutney

1/3 Cup mango chutney (I used a mix of sweet and spicy hot.)
2 Tablespoons yoghurt


1. Place all burger ingredients in a large bowl and combine thoroughly.

2. Divide and shape into 6 patties.

3 .Refrigerate while you make creamy chutney.

4. Combine 1/3 cup mango chutney and 2 T yoghurt together, refrigerate until required.

5. Heat frypan or grill and brush lightly with oil.

6. Cook patties over medium-high heat for 6-7 minutes each side or until cooked through, turning only once.

Serve with Creamy Chutney either alone or with your favourite burger bun. We served ours over sweet potato chips coated in olive oil and cumin seeds and snow peas.
