HARISSA lamb burgers

METHOD

  1. To make the mint yogurt, place the yogurt and mint in a bowl and mix together. Set aside for the flavours to develop.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan, add the onions and gently cook for 10 minutes until soft but not browned. Transfer to a large bowl and leave to cool.
  3. Add the lamb, parsley and Harissa to the onions, season and mix until well combined. Shape the mixture into four burgers.
  4. Either cook on a barbecue or a ridged grill pan. If using a grill pan, heat it until very hot then reduce the heat to medium. Brush the burgers with oil and place on the barbecue or grill. Cook for 4-6 minutes on each side, depending on how well done you like them.
  5. Slit one side of each pitta bread to make a pocket. Place a burger in each one, with some of the yogurt and salad.
