Sweet Ginger Cilantro Lamb Burgers With Cucumber Raita


1 lb ground lamb
2 t chopped candied ginger (can use 1 t ground ginger in place of this)
1/3 C golden raisins
1 T chopped Italian leaf parsley
2 T chopped fresh cilantro
½ t coriander powder
½ t seasoning salt
1 t salt, ½ t pepper

Cucumber Raita:

½ medium cucumber, seeded, and cut into small diced pieces
1 oz. plain Greek yogurt
2 T fresh squeezed lemon juice
Dash of salt and pepper
(You can add a finely chopped or grated clove of garlic if you like. –Sometimes I add dill weed, fresh or dried, but not this time since the burgers have ginger in them)


  • Combine all ingredients for burgers. Form into about 8–9 patties. Grill or cook in a pan with a little oil. Serve with raita and fresh cilantro. I served with carrots tossed with a little salt and pepper, oil, and 1 t of coriander powder,then sautéed them in the pan with the burgers for a one-pot meal.
