    Tikka Turkey Burgers

    These Indian-inspired burgers are made with lean turkey mince and flavoured with tikka paste and yogurt. If you have the time, make these burgers a few hours in advance, which will allow the flavours to marinate the meat.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes, plus 20 minutes chilling
    • Cooking time: 12 minutes to 16 minutes
    • Total time: 42 minutes to 46 minutes 50 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 1 onion, finely chopped
    • 4 tbsp Patak's Tikka Masala Curry Paste
    • 2 tbsp natural yogurt
    • 1 tbsp mango chutney
    • 500g pack Waitrose Fresh Turkey Breast Mince
    • 3 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
    • Oil, for brushing


    1. In a large bowl, mix together the onion, tikka paste, yogurt and mango chutney. Stir in the turkey mince, coriander and seasoning and mix until all ingredients are well combined.
    2. Divide the mixture into 4 and, with wet hands to prevent sticking, shape into burgers. Brush the burgers with a little oil and chill for 20 minutes.
    3. Preheat the grill or barbecue and cook the burgers for 6-8 minutes on each side until they are thoroughly cooked, the juices run clear and there is no pink meat.
    4. Serve the burgers in halved Waitrose Garlic and Coriander Small Naan Breads with some baby spinach leaves and a spoonful of Waitrose Tzatziki.

    Cook's tips

    These burgers can be frozen. Open-freeze the patties on a tray lined with greaseproof paper until firm, then pack into labelled containers or freezer bags and freeze for up to 1 month. Defrost thoroughly in the fridge before cooking.
