An easy variation for a burger. Mildly spiced and the raita was a nice addition. I recommend making the raita for immediate use as it did go a little runny being made in advance. Reveiwed for ZWT8. Photos to be posted also

This was easy to prepare and a nice change of pace from a typical burger. Despite all the spices in the burger mix, however, I found that a little salt would have enhanced the flavor more, and will do so next time. I actually liked the burgers better without the raita, but that is personal preference. Again, a little salt in the raita would have been good, but I was afraid to add it and have the cucumbers be too watery. Perhaps salting them first would help. Made for ZWT 8.
