Burgers are one of my favorite things to grill and there are so many options to choose from like; beef, pork, chicken, vegetable or turkey. I tend to love a juicy turkey burger, especially during the hotter months of the year because they tend to be a tad lighter in flavor and make the perfect platform to add unique toppings.
My turkey burgers are a lip smacking combination of a lean turkey patty, with Tandoori spices, freshly sliced cucumbers, and mango yogurt sauce. The entire burger is wrapped in grilled Naan, which is soft and supple with a nice chew.
I love the ease of preparing these turkey burgers, and you can cut down on time by using pre-formed patties, if desired. Also, they are super fun to serve at summer barbecues because these burgers are unique with a tantalizing combination of tastes. Serve them up with your best homemade potato salad and you have yourself one fine meal.
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey, I prefer dark meat
2 teaspoons curry powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 cucumber, sliced
6 slices provolone cheese
6 Naan, any variety
Mango Yogurt Sauce
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
1/3 cup light mayonnaise
2 tablespoon mango chutney
juice of 1/2 lime
pinch of salt & pepper
1. Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. In a small bowl combine, curry powder, onion powder, cumin and paprika. Remove meat from packaging and form into patties, sprinkle one side with seasoning.
2. In a small bowl, combine all Mango Yogurt Sauce ingredients, stir. Place burgers on grill and cook for 4 minutes.
3. Flip burgers over and cook for 4 minutes, then place 1 piece of provolone on top of each burger. Place Naan on grill to warm for 3 minutes, flipping half way through cooking time.
4. Remove burgers and Naan from grill. Assemble burgers by placing a patty on piece of Naan, then layering with a few cucumber slices, and a dollop of Mango Yogurt Sauce. Fold Naan over in half and secure with a toothpick, repeat with remaining patties. Enjoy!
