Ingredients

2/3 cup bulgur
2 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomato, packed without oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 pound lean ground lamb
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
2 garlic cloves, minced
Cooking spray
6 (2-ounce) onion sandwich buns

Preparation

Prepare raita.

Combine bulgur, tomato, and lemon juice in a small bowl.

Bring broth to a boil and pour over bulgur mixture. Let stand 30 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.

Preheat broiler.

Combine bulgur mixture, lamb, and next 6 ingredients in a medium bowl. Divide lamb mixture evenly into 6 (1/2-inchthick) patties. Place patties on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.

Top bottom half of each bun with a lettuce leaf; add burgers. Spoon Feta- Cucumber Raita evenly over burgers; top with remaining half of bun.
