Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon Cumin Seeds
  • ½ teaspoon Chilli Flakes
  • 500 g Lamb Mince/Ground Lamb
  • 1 Red Onion sliced
  • 1 Red Chilli sliced
  • 1 Orange Pepper sliced
  • 200 g Greek Yoghurt
  • 1-2 cloves Garlic crushed
  • ½ Cucumber chopped
  • 1 bunch Coriander/Cilantro chopped
  • 4 Brioche Buns (or whatever type of bun you prefer)

Instructions

  • Heat a frying pan or skillet over a high heat. Add the cumin seeds and chilli flakes and toast until they become fragrant. Remove from the heat and pour into a pestle and mortar or spice grinder. Grind into a powder.
  • Mix half the spice mix with the lamb mince and mix together. Form into four burgers. Sprinkle both sides with a good helping of salt. Heat a skillet over a high heat and sear the burgers until crispy on both sides, about 4-5 minutes on each side. Remove to a foil-covered plate and leave to rest.
  • In the same skillet add the onion, pepper and chilli along with the rest of the spice mix. Add a drizzle of oil if they look like they're sticking. Cook until caramelised, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Mix the yoghurt with the garlic cloves. Spread a spoonful of the mixture on the bottom of each of your buns. Top with a burger followed by the pepper mixture and a sprinkling of cucumber chunks and some coriander. Serve with extra yoghurt on the side.
