Spicy Bombay Sliders

When I made Buffalo Turkey Wraps, I only used half of the package of ground turkey since I mixed lentils into the meat.  Since we also had lettuce leaves, which are great to use as a gluten-free substitute for buns or wraps, we decided to make Spicy Bombay Sliders with the leftover turkey.  We picked up pound of ground chicken to round out the recipe – I don’t love the taste of turkey burgers, so adding a different meat usually milds the taste for me.  Lo made Spicy Bombay Burgers for a friendly cooking “competition” with our friends, so we knew how good they were going to be.
Spicy Bombay Sliders
recipe from The Fresh Market
Bombay Sauce:

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 T. garlic chili sauce
  • 2-3 T. hot curry paste (found in the asian section)
  • 1 T. sugar

Sliders:

  • 3/4 – 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 lb. ground chicken
  • 1 1/2 T. fresh ginger, minced (see tip below)
  • 1 t. cumin
  • 1 t. curry powder
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • salt and pepper

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, yogurt, chili sauce, curry paste and sugar. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Preheat grill to medium heat. In a large mixing bowl, fold together turkey, chicken, ginger, cumin, curry powder and garlic until well combined; form 1/3 cup of mixture at a time into patties. Season patties to taste with salt and pepper; grill 4 to 5 minutes per side until done. Serve sliders with spicy sauce.  I wrapped mine in lettuce leaves, while Lo ate his on a bun.

Ginger tip: I keep a knob of fresh ginger (found in the produce section near the garlic usually) in the freezer.  When I need of piece of it, I just grab it from the freezer and cut off a hunk with a sharp knife.  Using a veggie peeler or the knife, carefully peel the skin off the ginger.  Mince or prepare according to recipe instructions.  If I don’t need much ginger, I’ll often just peel part of the hunk with a peeler and continue to “shave” the ginger with the peeler.  Just chop the shavings to the size you need.
