Spicy Turkey Burgers

This is a great healthy option. Turkey is lean and a great source of protein, low in fats and calories and great for watching that figure!!

Makes 5-6 burger patties

500g turkey mince
65g  natural yoghurt
1/2 medium onion finely chopped/grated
1 large handful of coriander finely chopped
3 cloves crushed garlic
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 chilli finely chopped (for less heat remove the seeds)
5g chopped chives
1 tsp ketchup
1 tsp reggae reggae relish (or any chutney relish you prefer)
Salt and pepper to season

In a medium bowl mix together all above ingredients until the mixture starts to pull together.

Using your hands shape the mixture into round patties. They might seem soft and flimsy to handle, I make balls and press them straight onto a lined baking pre-sprayed tray.This is so much easier.

Cover with cling film and chill in the freezer for 10 minutes to firm the patties slightly.

Cook in a preheated oven at 200 degrees for 20mins or under a full grill for  for 6-7 minutes, or in a George Forman grill. for the same amount of time. Baste your burger with the juices released this will keep them nice and moist.

Serve on a whole grain bun with light mayo and a tossed green salad in an oil-free dressing.
