• large mixing bowl
  • scales
  • measuring spoons
  • chopping board
  • sharp knife
  • small bowl
  • frying pan or griddle pan
  • fish slice


  • STEP 1

    Weigh the lamb mince in a large mixing bowl, then measure the cumin and coriander using measuring spoons and add these to the lamb.

  • STEP 2

    Chop the parsley (stalks too) as finely as you can and add it to the lamb, then season with salt and pepper. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together, then divide into four portions and shape into burger patties. Chill for at least 1 hour or up to a day.

  • STEP 3

    Pick the mint leaves from the stalks – you only need the leaves. Finely chop the mint leaves and put them in a small bowl. Mix in the yogurt and a pinch of salt.

  • STEP 4

    Finely slice the lettuce or just pull apart the leaves. Slice the tomato.

  • STEP 5

    Rub the burgers all over with the oil. Place a griddle pan or frying pan on the hob over a high heat and, after a minute, carefully place the burgers in the pan and cook for 6-8 mins until nicely browned. Use a fish slice to carefully flip the burgers over and cook for another 6-8 mins. You can check if they’re cooked by cutting a burger in half – if there’s any pink meat in the middle, it needs to cook for a little longer.

  • STEP 6

    Split the burger rolls in half. Spread a little minty yogurt over the base of each one. Fill the rolls with some lettuce, a slice or two of tomato and a burger. Serve immediately.
