Don’t let turkey patties be boring ever again! These grilled sliders are made with tandoori spices and served with a sweet and salty mint raita.
My Tandoori Turkey patties (you can use chicken if you prefer) are perfect on the grill and are bursting with warm tandoori spices, mint, ginger and garlic. These take only minutes to make. I’ve used regular store bought tandoori spice mix here. The flavors taste amazing and my kids loved them! They can also be made ahead and frozen. The patties are placed on a hot grill and cooked to perfection until golden and delicious.
Indian spices add a wonderful depth of flavor to meats and poultry and this recipe is one such example where a few ingredients transform a mundane dish to something phenomenal. The tandoori spice blend consisting of aromatic spices such as coriander, cumin and cardamom is a great way to enjoy some Indian flavors effortlessly.
Stack the burgers with a sweet and salty mint raita with a hint of cumin. They make for delicious kids’ lunches and party appetizers with layers of lettuce,red onions and tomatoes on some mini hamburger buns.An easy and fun dish for the grilling season. Enjoy.
