Spicy Lamb Burger

These lamb burgers are inspired by the traditional lamb kebobs flavored with spices that I have eaten in Delhi, a capital city in northern India. I love the aromatic smell and complex flavor Indian kebobs and the classic American grilled burger. This is my way of incorporating the two. I often form these burgers into several mini burgers, or “sliders,” and serve them open face on store-bought naan bread. Whatever size you make them; they are great topped with Mint Chutney (page xx) or Plum Tomato Chutney with Mustard Seeds (page xxx) and served with a chilled glass of your favorite beer.

  Cumin seeds 3 Teaspoon, toasted and pounded
