Lamb Pita Burgers

Recipe: Vicki Ravlich-Horan | Photography: Brydie Thompson

Either as burger patties or sausage-like koftas served between pita with a yoghurt dressing, these are great on the BBQ but just as delicious in the middle of winter cooked on a griddle pan.

500g lamb mince
½ red onion, finely chopped
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
1 egg
½ cup breadcrumbs
1 garlic clove, crushed
fresh mint, chopped

Combine all the ingredients together and mix well. The best way to do this is with your hands.

Divide into four and shape into patties. Fry over a med-low heat until golden brown on both sides and cooked in the middle.
Serve between warmed pita bread with salad (rocket is perfect) and a generous dollop of the yoghurt dressing.

Yoghurt Dressing

1 cup unsweetened Greek yoghurt
½ cup fresh mint, chopped
½ tsp sumac
pinch salt

Mix all the ingredients together and chill until ready to serve.
