This recipe from the BBC is full of herbs and spices, so they’re bursting with flavour to bring your homemade burgers to a whole new level.
Servings: 4 people
Cook time: 30 minutes
● 1 tbsp sunflower oil
● 1 onion, finely chopped
● 2cm pieced ginger, finely chopped
● 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
● 1-2 birds-eye chillies (to taste), seeds removed and finely chopped
● 800g beef mince
● Pinch of salt
● 2 tsp ground cumin
● 3 tsp ground coriander
● 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
● 1-2 tsp chilli powder (to taste)
● 2 tbsp coriander, chopped
Heat the oil over medium heat and cook the onion until soft and slightly coloured. Add a splash of water if the onions start to stick to the pan.
Add the ginger, garlic and chilli, then fry until cooked and any liquid has evaporated. Put the mixture on a plate and spread everything out so it can cool.
Put the beef in a mixing bowl, add the cooled onion mixture and all the other ingredients, then combine everything well. Once combined, shape into 4 patties.
Heat a pan or barbecue to high heat, brush the patties with a little more oil and cook - around 5 minutes on each side should give a medium finish.
Serve in burger buns with peas and homemade potato wedges.
To store: Once the burgers have fully cooled, put them in an airtight container and keep them in the fridge for up to 3 days, or freeze them for later use.
