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!
