  • 1 garlic clove, crushed 
  • 100g natural yogurt

  • large handful salad leaves


  • Cook the onion with a couple of sprays of spray oil in a non-stick frying pan until soft. Add the spice mix and cook for a couple of minutes. Mix the lamb mince with the onion mixture, then season and shape into small patties. Leave the burgers in the fridge until ready to cook.

  • Wipe out the frying pan with kitchen paper and add a couple of squirts of spray oil. Fry the burgers for 8 mins, then turn them and continue to cook for around 5 mins or until cooked through.

  • Meanwhile, toss the cucumber with the vinegar and a pinch of salt, and set aside. Mix the garlic into the yogurt.

  • Serve the burgers in the toasted buns with the cucumber and yogurt sauce and plenty of salad leaves.
