Part of the reason these Tikka Turkey Burgers are so quick and easy is because of how we cooked them.

A couple of weeks ago, Tefal sent over an OptiGrill, so we’ve been putting our #GrillSkills to the test, and in the process came up with these Tikka Turkey Burgers!

We cooked these burgers on our Tefal OptiGrill, which senses how thick the meat is, and cooks it to your liking automatically. How amazing is that?!

Sounds a little too good to be true… right? That’s what we thought, but oh no – it makes it much easier to grill burgers, steaks, and chicken!

We’ve made a few recipes using the Tefal Optigrill, and I can honestly say it has given perfect results each time.

It’s pretty damn impressive – which is something we never say about anything. We’re very hard ladies to please, especially when it comes to kitchen gadgets!

It’s nice to not have to worry about ruining a really expensive steak, or undercooking things like burgers. Especially ones made from poultry mince.

You have to be very careful, and make sure they’re cooked through, especially if you have children.

The Tefal Optigrill is also handy to use when you fancy grilled food, but don’t fancy getting the BBQ out. With the heatwave we’ve we’ve just experienced, it’s even too hot to BBQ outside!

The bonus is that the Optigrill is ridiculously easy to clean. The plates come off, and are dishwasher safe.

How do I make these Tikka Turkey Burgers?

Step 1

First, make the Tikka seasoning (if you don’t have any made up already).

Mix all the ingredients together well, then store in an airtight jar until ready to use.

Step 2

In a large bowl mix the Turkey Mince with all the other burger ingredients (Not the Low calorie cooking spray, Rocket, Tomatoes and Rolls.)

If your mince is dry then add the egg. If not see what it’s like after you’ve mixed the burger ingredients. If it needs binding, add the egg a little at a time. You don’t want the mix to be too sloppy.

Step 3

Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and form them into burger shapes. You can use a burger press like this one from Amazon if you prefer.

Step 4

Put the burgers on a plate or tray, cover and refrigerate for a short time so they firm up slightly.

Step 5

Meanwhile, make the Raita.

Cut the piece of cucumber in half lengthways, scoop out the seeds and finely chop the flesh. Place it in a bowl. Finely chop the fresh mint leaves and add to the bowl with the cucumber.

Stir in the yogurt and season to taste with the salt. Set the raita aside in the refrigerator.

When you’ve made the Raita, turn on the OptiGrill and select the burger setting, then press OK.

Allow the OptiGrill to preheat. When it’s ready the indicator light will stop flashing and you will hear a beep.

Step 7

Spray the burgers on both sides with Low calorie cooking spray, then cook them on the OptiGrill until the indicator light turns red.

Step 8

While the burgers are cooking, slice the buns in half and arrange the rocket on the bottom followed by the sliced tomato.
