Indian-Style Turkey Burgers
These turkey burgers are really more Indian-inspired than Indian-style. The patties are flavored with mango chutney, yogurt, and curry powder--common ingredients in Indian cooking. The burgers can be shaped and refrigerated for several hours ahead of cooking. The chutney topping can also be made ahead.
  • 3/4 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup plain dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup mango chutney, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons plain fat-free yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 whole-wheat English muffins, split and toasted
  • 1 cup mixed greens

1. In medium bowl, combine turkey, breadcrumbs, half the chutney, 1 tablespoon of ketchup, yogurt, mustard, 1 teaspoon of curry powder, and salt. Mix well and shape into 4 patties.

2. In small bowl, combine remaining chutney, 2 tablespoons ketchup, and 1/2 teaspoon curry powder.

3. Preheat broiler. Cook burgers 4 to 6 inches from heat for 6 minutes, turning once, until browned and cooked through. Serve burgers on toasted English muffins topped with the chutney mixture and the greens.
