I have made these multiple times since before I got married in 2000. THANK YOU GEEMA, for publishing it again! I LOVE this recipe as do all of my guests. I usually double or triple the recipe for a huge crowd, form and freeze burgers for easy future meal. I squeeze my defrosted chopped spinach either through an obviously clean kitchen towel or cheese cloth. It's soooo much easier and less expensive than cleaning, blanching, draining and squeezing 3 or more bags of fresh spinach and just as nutritious using frozen spinach. I have added extra chutney and warmed some on the side to top the burger. I have also at times eliminated the red pepper to accommodate my guests. Tomorrow I will grind to a fine powder cashews, pistachios and or almonds (you may use any type of nuts and/or seeds to your taste) to use instead of the bread crumbs. I know it will be a success since it is in all my other dishes. I will also try to mince the spinach to make a finer burger mixture. This time my guests love spicy so I am going to kick it up with some fresh hot minced pepper, scotch bonnets on hand(I think:-). Check the chunkiness of your chutney, you might want to mince it up a spot. I can only hope my fabulous cuisinart will be successful at that task. Hope this helps. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I found the flavour of these great. I actually cooked my own spinach and put in them, as I find that my own cooked spinach is not as watery as thje frozen kind. I find it hard to get all the water out of frozen spinach. I had a really good indian mango chutney and I do think the chutney would change the flavour of your hamburgers as it really comes through. Use you favourite.
