Mutton Mince Burger


A spiced and seasoned mutton mince patty on store-bought wholewheat burger buns. Mustard Mayo, spiced tomato chutney, gherkins, caramelised onions and melted cheese made it so much more flavoursome.

Burger Patty

1 kg mutton mince
2 chopped onion
2 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 big egg
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup chopped coriander
3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tbsp medium peri peri sauce
1 tbsp red chilli flakes
1 tbsp oregano
Cheese slices

1) cook the onions with little olive oil till they are soft and pink. Let them cool.
2) wash and strain the mince
3) grind in mixer to bind. Don’t make it too pasty
4) put the mince in a big bowl and add all the ingredients including the cooked onions.
5) mix well and shape into patty. Refrigerate for atleast 1 hr, if you have the time then leave overnight or for 12 hrs. Will make 5-6 big patty.
6) heat butter and when it sizzles, put the patty to fry. Lower gas and let it cook. Turn and cook on the other side. About 5-7 mins each on both sides. At the end, place a cheese slice on the patty and shut the gas in 30 sec. The cheese will melt and envelope the burger.
