Grilled Lamb Köfte Mini Pita Burgers with Tahini Dressing
For the burgers:
16 ounces ground lamb
1 small onion, coarsely grated
2 garlic cloves finely chopped or grated
2 tablespoons garam masala
1 small bunch cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon chilli flakes
Tahini Drizzle: *Stella Star Ingredient
½ cup tahini
¼ cup warm water
Juice of ½ a lemon
1 garlic clove, peeled and grated on a microplane
Pinch of salt
4 small/mini pita bread
2 tomatoes, halved and sliced
1 red onion, sliced (optional)
Place the lamb into a large bowl along with the onion, garlic, garam masala, cilantro and chilli flakes and a good pinch of salt. Mix well with your hands. Pat the mix into small burgers.
To make the tahini sauce: combine the tahini, warm water, lemon, garlic, and salt in a bowl and whisk together until smooth.
To cook, heat grill to its highest setting and lay the burgers in a single layer on a baking tray (you may need to do this in batches, depending on how big your tray is).
Grill on the highest shelf for 5-6 minutes on each side until browned and cooked through. Pile burgers onto a platter and serve with all the accompaniments, so everyone can construct their own sandwich. Finish with the tahini drizzle.
