Spiced Lamb Burgers

Spicy Lamb Burgers

Makes 4 patties

450g lamb shoulder, minced
1tbsp Garam Masala
1tbsp smoked paprika
1tsp chilli flakes
1tsp dried mint
2tbsp olive oil

In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together, making sure you get your hands right in there and give it a good mix up.

Shape into patties - remember that the thicker they are, the longer they will take to cook. Go for about 1cm thick.

Heat the oil in a frying pan on a high temperature, then add the patties. They should sizzle as soon as they hit the pan.

Cook for about 8 to 10 minutes, turning over half way through.

Allow the patties to rest for a couple of minutes before assembling into your burgers along with any extras (pickled gherkins, processed cheese slices and tomatoes are also always good).
