  • 1.25 lb. ground turkey
  • cup panko crumbs
  • ¼ cup diced red pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder *
  • 1 tsp sweet chili sauce optional
  • ½ tsp finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 4 hamburger buns toasted if desired
  • mango chutney found in most grocery stores and lettuce to garnish if desired
  • Curry Sauce
  • ½ cup plain yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder


  • In a large mixing bowl combine turkey, panko, red bell pepper, cilantro, curry powder, chili sauce, ginger, garlic and salt and pepper. Form into 4 patties.
  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add patties and cook 3-5 minutes on each side until fully cooked. Alternatively you can cook the burgers on the stove in a grill pan or cook patties on an outside BBQ grill.
  • Toast hamburger buns if desired. Place one patty on each hamburger bun and garnish with mango chutney and lettuce. Top burger with curry sauce and serve.


* curry powder gives the burgers a flavorful (but not hot taste). If you prefer something a bit spicier you can substitute curry paste (like Thai curry paste, any color).
