Spicy Chicken Burgers (Simply delightful and very satisfying)

Spicy Chicken Burger

Hi everyone! I am so glad to be posting again. Last week was a good week food-wise . I tried out a few new recipes and they turned out pretty neat. One of them was this burger recipe that was a complete hit. Recently I have taken to watching re-runs of 30 Minute Meals by Rachel Ray and there is something about that show that really inspires me to just get up and spend time in the kitchen trying out recipes. It's probably Rachel enthusiasm on the show and the very homly no-fuss dinners that she makes that I find very appealing. So a few days back I saw her cook some burgers and cole slaw and I decided then that I wanted to cook burgers for dinner too. I already had chicken in the fridge. But I also wanted really spicy burgers.
So I surfed the net for some good burger recipes and was completely impressed by a recipe put up by Kevin on his blog Closet Cooking. Its a fab idea to use curry powder for burgers. My family just loved these burgers, so thanks Kevin for a great recipe.I tweaked it a bit here and there to suit my taste and it came out awesome.

What you need:
500 gms chicken mince (you could buy chicken breast and mince it in your processor)
4 spring onions finely chopped,
1 cup finely chopped coriander
1 tblspn minced ginger
1 tblspn minced garlic
1 cup bread crumbs
2 tspns lemon zest,
4 tspns hot curry powder,
2 tspns chilly powder,
2 to 3 tblspns tomato ketchup
salt to taste

To assemble the burger you need:
Burger Buns,
Tomato slices
Cheese slices
Ketchup or Hot Jalapeno Relish
Mix all the above ingredients well , but do not overmix. Use a gentle hand. This prevents the chicken patties from drying out.
Shape them into equal sized patties shallow fry for 10 to 12 mins turning them once over half-way through.
Assemble the burgers as you like and enjoy with some oven chips and a glass of icy coke.

ENJOY!!!! I know we did
