Ground turkey - 1 lb
Shallots, finely chopped - 1
Green chilies, finely chopped - 2
Paprika/cayenne pepper - 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Pepper powder - a little
Egg - 1
Oregano - a pinch
Lemon juice - a few drops
For the sweet chili sauce:
Chili garlic paste - 4 tbsp
Hot sauce - a few drops
White vinegar a few drops
Ketchup - 3 tbsp
Honey - 2 tbsp
Lettuce leaf - seperate the leaves and put them in ice cold water with a few drops of vinegar (helps to maintain the crunch)
White onion - sliced in circles
Pepper jack cheese or any cheese that you like
Burger buns - 8 nos
Mix all the ingredients of Sweet Chili Sauce together and set it aside. You can add more or less spicy as per your need.
Mix all the above together and put it back in
the fridge for a couple of
hours to set.
Make sure that the mix is at room temperature before you start making them.
Heat a skillet and just rub it with oil.
In the mean time, preheat the oven at 400 degrees (broiler). Divide the mix into equal portions and then place it on the hot skillet, after two minutes turn it and leave it for another two minutes.
Now place them on the bottom half of the bun and place it in a baking tray, followed by a slice of cheese on top and put in the oven for two to three minutes.
Remove them from the oven and allow it to rest for a couple of minutes before you are ready to serve them. If you don't like them well done, you remove them once the cheese melts.
Putting it in the broiler setting, will ensure that the burger doesn't become dry and stays juicy and tasty!
To plate it - on top of the melted cheese
spread the sweet chili sauce,
then place a couple of lettuce leaves, a slice of onion, tomato, a little
mustard (if you need) and place the top bun on top and serve.
