Curry Turkey Burgers & a Burger Down

After having a wonderful night out thanks to Foodbuzz's 24x24 and perhaps eating a little too much it was time to take it easy Sunday. I had taken the leftover raita from Rasika and thought that I could use it on a turkey burger, but I was trying to think of an exciting twist. Seeing as we just had Indian I thought about using Curry to stick with the theme for this weekend.

Although the picture is not too pretty, trust me this burger was delicious, and having a raita on top made the burger even more amazing. This burger is simple to make and packed full of flavor.

Sadly this amazing meal did have a causality. Lili was excited to eat her burger (because it was delicious..duh!) and did not pay attention to the fact that her chair was hanging a little bit over the pool. Bang! Almost fell into the pool-luckily she saved herself...sadly the burger did not make it.

Curry Turkey Burger

Ingredients (Serves 3-4)
1lb ground turkey
6-8oz plain greek yogurt
1T Curry powder
1T cilantro
Salt and Pepper (just give a few shakes/twists for each)

1. Preheat grill/grillpan to medium high heat. Mix together all ingredients and form into patties.
2. Cook for about 5 minutes on both sides or until internal temperature is 160 degrees.
3. Cover with Raita and enjoy!

I usually eat my burgers without buns due to personal preference but leaving the bun off is a good way to save calories. I have not yet mastered a recipe for Raita, but here is a good one that has gotten a lot of good reviews :)
