I created this burger a couple of months ago and I could only say it was very, very yum! If you want a burger with a twist, you should definitely try this one!
I initially made the burger patty with miced chicken, but I also tried it with beef, so both works fine.
The patty is spiced with tandoori masala and ginger garlic paste, the fluffy bun is topped with delicious chutney, grilled halloumi (or paneer, Indian cheese), caramelised onion and...mint and coriander leaves! It seems unusual but trust me, the combination is mind blowing!
Start by adding the flour to the bowl of a stand mixer and add the salt on one side and the yeast on the other side. Add the butter and sugar to it. Combine the milk and the water and add them to the flour mixture gradually while the mixer starts kneading. Let the mixer knead everything for 5 minutes or until the dough is very smooth and very elastic. Transfer to an oiled bowl and cover with plastic foil. Let it proof for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
After 1 hour, knock all the air out of the dough and divide it into 4 equal pieces. Form them into smooth balls with your hands and let them rest on the baking tray (lined with baking paper) for 30 minutes.
After 20 minutes, preheat the oven and prepare the buns. Take some milk and a pastry brush and brush each bun with a little bit of milk, then sprinkle the sesame seeds or nigella seeds. Bake them at 190 degrees for about 25 minutes, increasing the temperature by 20 degrees in the last 5-10 minutes. Cool on a rack.
