Best lamb burgers

    20 min

    I made up this mixture on a whim and wow! These are definitely the best burgers I've ever had and everyone who's had them says the same. The spices are Indian in origin, but the flavour is deliciously unique!

    Have made these twice now & making them again for this evening! They're gorgeous & a real twist on flavours, the spices really compliment the lamb. Thanks for sharing!  -  20 May 2015


    I've just realized the fatal flaw in this recipe. For some reason listed the ingredient as '1 tablespoon' of egg. It should be 1 egg!  -  21 Oct 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I thought these were very good. I probably had about 1.5 lbs. of ground lamb and cut the garam masala back by half as I feared my 11 year old wouldn't eat it. I got a recipe for garam masala off the internet: 1/2 tsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp. paprika, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. cayene powder, 1/8 tsp. ground cloves. Everyone liked it and I will use the suggested amount next time.  -  23 Nov 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
