Homemade Burgers with Mint and Cumin Yogurt Sauce

"These juicy homemade burgers served with a mint, cumin and yoghurt sauce and some homemade burger buns will change your perspective on buying any ever again. They freeze beautifully ready for a midweek meal too. This recipe makes 8 chunky burgers but can be made into meatballs (will make up to 40) or lamb kofta (this recipe will make approximately 16 kofta). It all depends on the size but just to have a rough idea. I love those kofta grilled on skewers too. Ideal for parties, gatherings or the meatballs to be added to some nice tomato base sauce, you name it. "

Notes* time to cook the burgers will obviously vary depending on the size you have chosen to model these into, mine were pretty chunky ??

* meat can be changed and varied between chicken, turkey or pork mince, mix it as you wish. They will not come out dry in any case as the soda bicarbonate will make them puffy and the potato will keep them juicy.

* go wild with spices and add whatever you may like – I like them this way as you want to feel the meat flavours and lamb is a beautiful meat to add too many spices to.

  • Burgers 500 g ground lamb I used 20% fat content
  • 200 g ground beef I used 5% fat content 20 ml beer 4 tbs(optional
  • 1/2 tsp soda bicarbonate * optional
  • 1 tsp salt sea or Pink Himalayan
  • 3 cloves garlic grated or finely chopped
  • 2 potatoes small size
  • 1 tsp rosemary dry or fresh finely chopped
  • 1/4 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper or chilli flakes
  • Sauce:150 ml Greek yoghurt


  1. Peel and grate the potato. Use the small holes on grater.

  2. Grab a larger bowl, add the mince/ground meat (both lamb and beef). Add the salt, pepper, grated potato and garlic, chopped rosemary, chilli flakes soda bicarbonate and beer if you decide to use these. I strongly recommend you do.

  3. Mix nicely the meat with all the ingredients and set aside for a good few minutes. Make the burgers and place on a plate ready to be fried/grilled or barbecued.

  4. Take out a non stick frying pan or a griddle pan, add a dash of oil – I use oil spray generally and place 4 burgers in once the pan is nice and hot. Cook for 6-7 minutes or more if you make them very chunky.

  5. While these cook, make the sauce by mixing all the sauce ingredients (yoghurt, lemon juice, mayo, chopped fresh mint, cumin seeds or powder into a bowl. Mix well and it's ready to use.

  6. Enjoy these burgers with some nice homemade burger buns and some caramelised onions or even some grilled aubergine.
