These tasty burgers might look like they have a lot of ingredients but are actually really easy and definitely worth the extra effort to make them yourself.


  • 1 heaped tsp cumin seeds
  • 100g mushrooms
  • 500g minced chicken
  • 1 onion
  • 2tsp grated root ginger
  • 2tsp crushed garlic
  • 1-2 green chillies, deseeded if you like, finely chopped
  • 3tbsp chopped coriander leaves finely grated
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 2tsp garam masala
  • vegetable oil, for frying


Toast the cumin seeds in a dry frying pan over a medium heat, stirring until they are fragrant and a shade darker. Grind to a powder in a pestle and mortar.
Blitz the mushrooms in a food processor. Combine all the ingredients, except the oil, in a bowl.

Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or so. Divide into 8 and form each into a burger shape. Shallow-fry over a medium heat in a frying pan or griddle. Or lightly brush with oil and grill. Turn halfway through cooking. Whichever method you use should take about 3 minutes each side. Check that they are thoroughly cooked by cutting into the middle – it should be white with no trace of pink. Serve in buns with salad and chutney.
