    Default Chicken Tikka Burgers

    Hi All,
    I've been making these for a long time now and thought it was about time I cooked some and took some photos.
    These are made with minced chicken (leg meat). Some tikka paste, fresh coriander, mix powder, salt and a mix of fresh garlic, green chillies, carrot.
    I get this from the same Asian store where I get the chicken.
    The garlic, chilli and carrot mix has gone through a fine mincing process (that sounds wrong) and kept in the fridge for a few hours. During this time a lot of water collects in the bottom of the bowl. The butcher then uses a slotted spoon and drains it before adding some to a plastic bag.
    I use about 4 tablespoons of this mix to a kilo of minced chicken.
    It is quite a sticky mix at this stage so I add a couple of tablespoons of bread crumbs.
    Once everything is mixed I leave it for a couple of hours before making into 5 oz burgers.
    I use a burger press to shape them and place on a plastic tray to freeze individually.
    Once they are frozen they can then be bagged together without sticking together.
    I cook them from frozen in a nonstick pan over a low heat turning only once after about 7-8 minutes of cooking.
    These really do taste great and can be eaten as I have them in the photos or in burgers buns.
    The fresh taste of the garlic and chillies is spot on.
    Simple but delicious.
    Cheers
    Mick

    And they taste as good as they look. I was lucky enough sample a couple when we visited Mick and his family last month.

    Nice photos there Mick.

    4 tablespoons of minced green chilli and garlic,
    Slack handfull of chopped Coriander,
    1 tablespoon of Mix powder
    1 tablespoon of Tikka Paste

    Hi Ricky,
    Good to hear from you.
    To be honest, I think you could leave out the carrot and you wouldn't notice. I can't detect the loss of carrot.
    I would say though, that the mix is about 45%/45%/10% Garlic/Chilli/Carrot.
    You may want to alter the Mix Powder ratio. I sometimes add more than the 1 tablespoon amount.
    Cheers
    Mick

    I have a complaint Mick!!
    made seven quarter pounders.. even traveled down to Bournemouth to get a burger press and took them to my eldest sons barby...after eating the first one was hoping to bring a couple home as he had loads of sausages and tesco flavored quarter pounders but mine all got eaten first and they were looking for more!
    next weekend another batch is going to be made and hidden in my freezer.
    cheers for the great recipe
    Ricky
