Moroccan Lamb Patties
- 500 g lamb mince
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- 1 tsp ground paprika
- 1 Tbsp tomato sauce
- 2 Tbsp fresh coriander & mint; chopped
- oil for frying
1. Place all the ingredients, except for the oil, in a large bowl and, using clean hands, mix until they are well combined. Form the mince mixture into 4 even-sized patties.
2. Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the patties (do not overcrowd). Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side (the patties should not be overcooked).
3. Serve the patties with a salad and a dollop of humus or as an alternative to a traditional hamburger.
4. To make a Moroccan-style burger, slice four Turkish rolls into two (you can find them in the bread section of your supermarket). Rub the cut surface with a clove of garlic and drizzle over a little olive oil. Grill the bread slices until golden. Spread the bread with a layer of humus, topped with lettuce and the lamb patty. Drizzle the patty with natural yoghurt and sweet chilli sauce. Top with the remaining half of the bun and serve.
