It’s burger week!! I take this opportunity to send you my hamburger recipe, the one that will make you travel a bit...

For 4 people


For the dumpling: 

600 g ground lamb (or beef)

1 small onion, finely chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 tbsp. tablespoon butter chicken spice A Spice Affair

Mix everything together. If you want to make it smoother, put some bread that will have been soaked in the milk for a few minutes.





Slice of grilled halloumi cheese

Fried onions

Raita and mango sauce (see below)



1 tbsp. cumin seeds

1 tbsp. mustard seeds

1/4 cup mint, very finely chopped

1/4 cup cilantro, very finely chopped

200 g thick yogurt (Greek style)

Juice of 1 lime

Salt and pepper, to taste

Over medium heat, toast the spices in a skillet until fragrant. Pour into a mortar and grind to powder.

In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Add the spices, season, and set aside until ready to serve. If water appears on top of the yogurt, simply stir the mixture again.
