  • Combine beef, onion, chile pepper, cilantro, yogurt, flour, cumin, garam masala, turmeric, coriander, garlic, salt, and pepper in a large bowl and mix well with clean hands.

  • Roll beef mixture in to 4 large balls and flatten into patties 1/2- to 3/4-inch thick. Place on a plate, separated by wax paper, until grill is ready.

  • Grill burgers until cooked to preference, 5 to 7 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

You can also use a mix of ground lamb and beef for some different taste, but beef works great! I made this for a football party and even the most traditional eaters loved it.
