Spice it up with this Indian-inspired burger that will wake up your taste buds.



*English cucumbers have less water and seeds than traditional cucumbers. Pat cucumbers dry before dicing for best results.


For burgers: Mix the lamb and pork together in a large bowl. Set aside. Mix Vindaloo, canola oil and shallots in a small bowl until blended. Add the spice mixture to the meat and form 2 to 4 patties (depending on preferred size) and set aside.

For pickled red onion: Cut onion into thin slices. Set aside. In a medium bowl, add rice vinegar, chili powder, cilantro and salt. Whisk ingredients together. Add the vinegar mixture to the bowl of onions. Set aside for at least 15 min.

For raita: In a large bowl, add yogurt, cumin, lemon zest, granulated onion, granulated garlic and mint. Stir to combine. Add diced cucumber to the yogurt mixture. Chill.

To assemble: Grill Vindaloo patties to desired doneness. To assemble, place some pickled onions on a piece of naan, add a patty and top with a dollop of raita and another piece of naan.

“I have to say that we tried the Chicken Tikki Masala spice and recipe. My husband made a double batch of it because he wanted leftovers during the week! And needless to say, the dinner was again great! Too yummy!”
