My friend Anita gave me this recipe recently in a restaurant when I had already drank a few glasses of wine, so this may not be exact but the basis is the same :-). These can be served in a burger bun or in a wholemeal pitta with some salad and some curry mayo.


1 tbsp of curry powder

1 finely chopped red chilli

1 tbsp of cumin powder

1 tbsp ground coriander

small bunch of coriander, chopped

1 large onion finely chopped

500g turkey mince

75g breadcrumbs

50g flour

1 egg, beaten

Salt and pepper

4 tbsp of olive oil or cooking spray

Curry Mayo

1 tbsp of curry powder

4 tbsp of mayonnaise


  1. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil or cooking spray in a pan and fry off the onions for 3 minutes, add in the chilli and cook for a further 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix the mince, spices, curry powder, breadcrumbs, beaten egg, coriander, onion, chilli, and add the seasoning. Season very well as the turkey mince can tend to be quite bland.
  3. Place the flour on a plate. Bind the mince into patties and place on the flour turning over to dust on both sides.
  4. The mixture should make 4 burgers.
  5. Heat the remainder of the oil in the frying pan and fry off the burgers, you could use the grill or a griddle pan also.  I would suggest frying the burgers until golden brown on both sides, turning occasionally to prevent burning. They take about 7-8 minutes on either side.
  6. Mix the mayo and the curry powder together in a bowl. You can smear this on your burger bun or pitta bread. Alternatively, serve it as a dip with wedges to complete the meal.
