Shawarma Burger

We live in modern times but the people among us are moving backwards to the stone age.

From, gossip, hate speech, rape, killing in the name of sect/religion/honor to FUCKING DRIVING A CAR ON HIGH BEAMS the society consists of all sorts of evil.

BUT who gives a shit? Roads se le ker insaani jaan aur sab kuch sab ke baap ka hai yaha toh insaan aur uske haqooq aur farz bhe phir uske baap ke hee hain.

WHAT DO I DO IN THESE STRESSFUL TIMES?

The only thing which I do good i.e going in the kitchen and making myself or my brother something to eat.

Much needed therapy.

Some days ago I saw this recipe of a beef burger and I went to BYOB after that. Ate a burger and the buns just fell apart. PLEASE FIX YOUR DAMN BUNS BYOB.

So I realized how much I miss beef burgers and I decided to try that recipe out.


It is called Shawarma Burger. People who love mild food will enjoy it but other's should definitely try this juicy Arabic spiced beef patty with the amazing curried yogurt sauce.


INGREDIENTS FOR BURGER PATTY:

900 grams low fat lean beef minced (you can find it from meat one or any good meat shop)


salt and pepper to taste

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 teaspoon paprika

2 teaspoon curry powder

1 teaspoon cumin powder

2 garlic cloves minced

4 tablespoons finely chopped coriander

INGREDIENTS FOR YOGURT SAUCE:

1 cup yogurt

2 teaspoon cumin

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 teaspoon curry powder

juice of 1 lemon

1 garlic clove minced

salt to taste

INGREDIENTS FOR SALAD:

Thin sliced onion


Thin sliced tomato

Handful of coriander leaves

Juice of one lemon

1 tablespoon of live oil



First of we start with making the beef patty for the burger.

Add salt, pepper, garlic, paprika, curry powder, cumin, cardamom powder and coriander in the mince.

Mix it with hands and then forms 4-6 equal size patties.

Let them rest for a while in the fridge.




Meanwhile we prepare the sauce.

On low flame put 1 tablespoon olive oil in a pan and fry cumin and curry powder in it for 2 minutes.

Add the cumin and curry powder mixture in the yogurt.

Add garlic and juice of one lemon.

Mix it well and the sauce is ready.





Now we preheat a non stick pan on medium low heat and start cooking our burger patties for 5-7 minutes on each side.

NOTE - when you put the patty for cooking press the middle with 2 fingers or a thumb so it doesn't puff out.





Let the patties cook and make the salad with me.

Thinly slice tomatoes, onions and put a handful of coriander leaves on them.

Add lemon juice and olive oil.

Mix it and the salad is ready.




Time to flip the burger patties. COOK THEM ON THE OTHER SIDE!!!

Cover the pan for about 3 minutes and your patties are all juiced up/cooked up to go for burger assembly.



Let's assemble the burger now.

Toast your buns.

Apply the sauce of both sides.

Place the burger patty.

Top it generously with the salad and cover it with the top bun.

THERE YOU GO.



Dip the burger in the leftover sauce and take a huge bite and let the flavors dance inside your mouth. Shawarma Burger ladies and gentlemen.
