Garam masala is a blend of ground spices including cinnamon, cumin, dried chiles, and coriander. Wear plastic gloves to keep the chicken mixture from sticking to your hands. Serve with cucumber spears.
1/4 cup presliced green onions
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons garam masala
1 teaspoon bottled ground fresh ginger (such as Spice World)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 pound ground chicken
1/4 cup 2% low-fat Greek yogurt
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup hot mango chutney
4 (1 1/2-ounce) hamburger buns
1 cup fresh spinach leaves
How to Make It
To prepare patties, combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. Divide mixture into 4 equal portions, shaping each into a 1/2-inch-thick patty. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add patties to pan; cook 7 minutes on each side or until done.
Combine yogurt, mint, and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Spread 1 tablespoon chutney on bottom halves of 4 buns; top each with 1 patty, 1 tablespoon yogurt mixture, 1/4 cup spinach, and a bun top.
I thought these were pretty tasty. Its a different take on your regular hamburger and a good weeknight meal. I could not find mango chutney so I substituted it with apricot jam and added a bit of jalapeno pepper.
A grown up burger!! I added some chopped onion to the meat I also used honey flavored greek yogurt. Still low calorie, I just personally am not a huge mint fan. If you are looking for a low calorie, flavorful burger this is it!
Ok so.. I served these as a DIY burger! I let each one put whatever they wanted on the bun. We all added a bit of each (spinach, mint-yogurt, chutney). We loved them! The flavors had an amazing combination! We use garam masala in our food so it wasn't too much for us. We like flavor! Will make again since everyone is already asking for them :)
I had high hopes for these burgers! The flavor is very intense. I ate them one night with the toppings and in a bun. The second serving I made for lunch without a bun and only the yogurt sauce. Lunch-style was better, however still won't make them again.
This is a really bold, flavorful burger -- with a little kick. My six year old ate his up, while my younger kids preferred to go without the toppings. We don't eat burgers often and this was a really, surprising treat.
Did not wear gloves to the shape burgers, so they did stick to hands a bit. My husband & two teen daughters loved them. They wanted to know why I did not double the recipe so they could have burgers for the next day. Served on whole wheat hamburger buns. The mango, yogurt mixture & spinach leaves are a must!! Would make again!!
I did not like this. It didn't have enough flavor and the burgers were dry. Now, I've never made burgers before this (I mostly eat vegetarian), so maybe I did something wrong. Also, I didn't serve it with chutney/yogurt/spinach, just with some ketchup on english muffins, so that may have been part of the problem. Mainly, though, I think this needs a lot more spice/flavor.
