Great recipe. Used Harissa instead of curry powder, as my bloke doesn't like cumin. Did these for the first time last night, and everyone liked them so much I'm doing them again tonight ;)

This recipe was lovely. The burgers were really tasty and juicy. I took heed of other comments and made the patties a bit flatter, but they still they came out really big! Think I will make 5, rather than 4 next time

I made these without the egg yolk & coriander and mixed my own Madras curry powder - still delicious and held together well in the pan.

Very nice. Great alternative for people like me, who avoid red meat.

My sister made these for the family and they were very tasty, and juicy too which was nice as I find beefburgers can be a little dry sometimes. I liked the curry flavour and I adore coriander, can't get enough of the stuff! The only thing I would say is make the burgers quite thin, or they will take a while to cook through.

delicious. I added 1 tbsp of bran for extra fibre. Very tasty!

these were so tasty. Read previous comments and really minced the tuna and also added one red chilli. Much better than a beef burger!

I did these under the grill to be extra healthy and as they were quite sticky wouldn't pan fry anyway. Loved the curry flavour though. Fab

Easy to make and the teenagers love them. Good for freezing too!
