Lean minced lamb 400g (14oz)
Onion 1 small, peeled and very finely chopped
Ready-to-eat dried figs 150g (5oz), roughly chopped
Medium curry powder 1 tsp
Mixed spice 1 tsp
Chopped coriander 3 tbsp
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil 2–3 tbsp
Large rolls or baps 4
Lettuce leaves such as Frisée or Curly Endive
Coriander a few sprigs

1 Put the minced lamb, onion, figs, curry powder, mixed spice and coriander into a mixing bowl. Add a little salt and pepper and mix together with your hand.

2 Divide the lamb mixture into four equal pieces and then shape each one, on a lightly floured board, into burgers about 2.5cm (1in) thick.

3 Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, then add the burgers and cook for 5–6 minutes. Carefully turn them over and cook the other side for another 5–6 minutes until golden brown, and the burgers are cooked through.

4 To serve, put each burger in a roll or bap together with some lettuce leaves and coriander sprigs.

Cook’s tip
For the best result and flavour, buy lean leg of lamb steaks and chop them very finely (using two large knives), or in a food processor. Bought, ready minced lamb can lack flavour.
