Rent a Bollywood flick to go with these nice and spicy burgers made with either ground chicken or lamb, slapped into a pita! Serve them up with a potato salad tossed with chickpeas and scallions and dressed with cumin, garlic, lemon juice and extra-virgin olive oil. Times are estimates. Thanks to Rachael Ray for this adapted recipe.
