this recipe has tons of potential as an everyday dish, company dish, or even for a restaurant. i think it could use some garam masala, and maybe a nice spoonful of ghee in the middle of each patty. i actually used cilantro instead of mint, since that's what i had on hand. my suggestion would be to use a little extra fresh herb if you are using cilantro (maybe 1/3 cup). we ate these with basmati rice, but i think they'd be great with fresh naan, like an south asian spin on the classic burger. the yogurt sauce offsets the heaviness of the burger perfectly. tasty!

Quite tasty. It would probably be even better made with ground lamb. I had to substitute dried mint because something dug up my my freshly-planted mint and its not doing well enough to cut any. I also substituted Anaheim peppers instead of the jalapenos because we like the flavor without the fire.
