  2. Meanwhile, use a swivel peeler to peel strips of carrot and cucumber into a bowl. Toss with the vinegar and sugar until the sugar has dissolved, then toss through the coriander leaves. Divide the salad between 4 plates. Serve with the burgers and rice.

Not tried this before and have bought green Thai paste by mistake.... Do you think it will still work and taste as good??

Great recipe and it is quick to make. I usually make it with Warm Potato Salad (http://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/2668/warm-potato-salad)

Fab! 5*! Added 3 garlic cloves crushed, pinch of chilli flakes and a tbsp of lemon juice. Lemon juice made it a bit wet and first burger did collapse, so I grilled the top instead and all stayed in one piece. Delish! :)
