I am not a big fan of burgers in general, because wherever I had so far weren’t any out of this world like burgers . Except for the one  I had in Lisbon near Vasco da Gamma bridge  I can still remember and it was damn delicious.

If you are on the fence, I’m over here giving you a gentle nudge in the direction of try-something-new! and maybe another nudge toward live-a-little! in the hopes that you’ll love them as much as I do.

INGREDIENTS

500 gm minced chicken breast
1-2 tbsp Thai Red curry paste ( according to your taste)
1 finely chopped small onion
A handful of chopped coriander
4 soft buns or croissant of your choice( I have used oval ones here)
1 cup of mixed salad leaves.
A handful of regular or fresh Thai basil and coriander leaves.

For the coconut satay sauce

1 tbsp crushed dry roasted peanuts
2-3 tbsp coconut cream
3 tsp peanut butter
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
1-2 tbsp sweet chili sauce
1-2 tsp fish sauce

DIRECTION

1) In a large bowl, take the minced chicken, red curry paste, chopped onion, coriander,  salt, pepper, and mix it very well for a couple of minutes. You can also do this in a food processor . Now, chill in the fridge for 30 mins. Then, divide the mixture into oval shape equal size patties 

2) Put all the ingredients for satay sauce in a small saucepan and simmer gently, stirring it for 1-2 minutes. Once it thickens, set aside to cool.

3) Brush the patties with some oil on both sides and cook on a hot pan or griddle or on a grill for  4- 5 minutes on each sides or until cooked, and check by inserting with the help of a fork or skewer .
4) To assemble, fill the buns with the salad leaves, chicken patties, drizzle a spoon of the coconut satay sauce on the top and garnish with some fresh basil and coriander leaves.

Spoil yourself with more sauce to go with each bite.

TIPS:

This burger patty also goes great with traditional toppings, such as tomatoes and cheese.

The peanut sauce is great for chicken satays or Chicken Skewers or over hot Thai sweet chilli chicken wings.
