Made this recipes as "sliders" as a party appetizer for NYE. I used 1lb ground turkey instead of chicken, add 4 cloves of garlic, a can of chickpeas (coarsely chopped) and extra garam masala. I put them on wheat Hawaiian sweet rolls. I had diced the red onion and put that on the bottom bun and a sliced cucumber on top of the burger (both onions and sliced cucumbers marinated in mint, pear-balsalmic vinegar, and a dash of EVOO, overnight). This made for an excellent presentation and made 21 sliders. Everyone at the party raved! Thanks for the idea! Will try again soon with ground chicken!
