Mini Chicken Tikka Burgers with Mint Chutney

Not sure where we got this recipe but it is yum!

For the Burgers:

1 tbs tikka paste or ½ tbs curry powder
1 tbs. plain yogurt
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp ground cardamom
1 tbs chopped fresh cilantro
¾ “ piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 crushed garlic clove
14 oz ground chicken (I use 1 pkg which is 18 oz)

For the Mint Chutney:
1 small bunch fresh mint
¾ “ piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 small green chili-chopped
Juice of half a lime
½ tsp. sugar
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
1/3 c. plain yogurt
S/P- to taste

To assemble: Cooking oil, 4 small Naan (Indian Flatbread) toothpicks
In a large bowl, combine the burger ingredients. Mix well. With wet hands, mold the mixture into 12 small patties. Place the patties on a plate and refrigerate for 1 hr. Make the chutney. In a blender, combine the chutney ingredients. Pulse to produce a thick sauce. Season to taste with S/P. Set aside. Heat a grill or grill pan over med-hi. Brush the burgers with cooking oil, and then grill for 5 min/per side until cooked through. Set aside. Cut each Naan bread into 3 wedges and toast or grill until crisp. Top each wedge with a burger, then spear with a skewer. Spoon a bit of chutney on each burger.We s
erve this with curried chick peas or curried vegetables.
