Chilli Burger recipe


  • 1½ pounds or 700 grams of Minced Beef
  • 4 Buns
  • 1 medium Onion (finely chopped)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (Lehsan Ke Jaway) (peeled & crushed)
  • 4 tbsp. or 60 ml of Fresh Coriander/Cilantro Leaves (Hara Dhania) (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp. or 15 ml of Crushed Chilli Flakes (Kutti Mirch)
  • 2 tsp. or 10 ml of Ground Cumin (Pisa Zeera)
  • Salt (to taste)
  • Black Pepper Powder (Pisi Kaali Mirch) (to taste)
  • 2 tbsp. or 30 ml of Sun-Dried Tomato Paste
  • Butter (for toasting buns)
  • 2 tbsp. or 30 ml of Cooking Oil

Cooking Instructions

Heat oil in a pan and fry the garlic and onion until the onions are translucent and soft.

Add the cumin and chilli flakes and fry for 2 minutes. Leave to cool slightly, then place in a bowl with the beef, sun-dried tomato paste, coriander, salt and black pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly, then divide into 4 equal portions and shape into burgers.

Brush the grill or pan with a little oil and cook the burgers for about 8 mins, turning once.

This will result in a medium-rare burger (increase cooking time to taste). Put butter on buns and lightly toast in a frying pan. Place the burger in the toasted bun.

Add lettuce and sauces as require
