Indian-style Burger/ Indi-Burger

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


What with the huge amounts of western influence, burgers are popular food in India. Want to give your burgers an Indian flavor? So easy! Try this recipe.... It serves 4.


  • 500 gms beef or lamb finely minced
  • 2 tsps garlic paste
  • 1 tsp ginger paste
  • 1 small bunch fresh coriander (approximately 100 gms/ 0.22 lbs) - keep leaves and stems, remove roots - chopped very fine
  • 2 green chillies chopped very fine
  • 2 slices bread, soaked in water till soft and then crumbled
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp lime/ lemon juice
  • Vegetable/ sunflower/ canola cooking oil to shallow fry the burger patties
  • 4 burger buns
  • Butter to spread on the buns
  • 4-5 tbsps mint-coriander chutney (recipe below)
  • 1 large onion sliced into rings
  • 2 large tomatoes cut into rings


  • Take a large mixing bowl and put the minced meat, ginger and garlic pastes, chopped coriander, chopped green chillies, bread crumbs (as above), spice powders, salt to taste and lime/ lemon juice in it.
  • Mix thoroughly to blend all ingredients and create a patty mix. Divide into 4 portions and form into patties. Line a plate with baking paper and place the patties on it for later.
  • Heat the oil in a large griddle or frying pan, on a low to medium flame. When hot, add the patties to it (do not overcrowd the pan) and cook on both sides, till done.
  • While the patties are cooking, slice each bun in the center, open and then lightly toast in a grill or toaster oven. Butter as desired.
  • Now spread about 1 tbsp of Mint-Coriander Chutney on each bun.
  • Place a cooked patty on each bun and add onion and tomato rings. Season with salt if required, close the bun and serve right away.

Amazing!, Member hazidays

My boyfriend and my favorite Indian restaurant was closed over the holidays, and we were missing their marsala burgers! So, I decided to look up a recipe for it and I'm glad I found this one and tried it out! We couldn't find fresh coriander...I'm sure thats a major part of this, but it came out great anyways. We also made the Mint-Coriander Chutney, again without the Coriander unfortunately, but that was great as on the burger as well. We also served the burgers with baked sweet potato fries. I definitely recommend this and we will be having this again!
