A Kafta burger is the perfect way to add some Middle Eastern flavour to your burger repertoire. Made with mouth-watering lamb mince, as well as a selection of fresh herbs and spices, these burgers are bursting with taste and texture. You can whip them up in no time with this easy-to-follow recipe, which involves mixing the meat and herb mixture with a range of fragrant spices, shaping the patties, and grilling, frying, or cooking them to perfection. To complete the experience, serve your kafta burgers with some hummus, fresh tomato, pickled red onion, and fresh mint leaves. For an extra burst of Middle Eastern flavour, you can substitute hummus with a dollop of tahini sauce or tzatziki. So why not switch things up and try making these delicious kafta burgers for your next barbecue or gathering at home?
In a food processor or small chopper, combine the basil leaves, mint leaves, parsley, onion, and capsicum. Pulse until the mixture is somewhat finely chopped.
Add the lamb to the herb mixture and pulse once or twice until just combined. Be careful not to overwork the mixture.
In a large bowl, add the Bharat, ground cumin, paprika, and minced chili (if using) to the meat mixture. Mix well to combine.
Form the mixture into patties of your desired size.
Heat a grill or frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the patties for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked through.
Serve the kafta burgers on burger buns with hummus, fresh tomato, pickled red onion, and fresh mint leaves.
