My constant dilemma when picking where to go out for dinner is Indian or burgers/pizza? It is quite the first world problem, and usually it is resolved by whoever I am going for dinner with (apparently most people don’t crave Indian like I do). But everything changed when I was scrolling through Instagram and came across Canadian Living’s Butter Chicken Burger. What?? You can only imagine how excited I was to try out this magical combination.


Butter Chicken Burgers

Prep 25 min | total 25 min | servings 4


  • 1 egg
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) dried bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) butter chicken curry paste
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
  • 2 tsp (10 mL) grated fresh ginger
  • 3/4 tsp (4 mL) garam masala
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
  • 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper
  • 1 lb (454 g) ground chicken
  • Toppings:
    • Cucumber, sliced
    • Slices of mozza cheese
    • Plain Greek yogurt



  1. In bowl, stir together egg, garlic, bread crumbs, curry paste, lemon juice, ginger, garam masala, salt and pepper; mix in chicken just until combined.
  2. Divide mixture into quarters; with wet hands, gently press to form 4 patties.
  3. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until instant-read thermometer inserted sideways into patties reads 165ºF (74ºC), 10 to 12 minutes. – I used a frying pan, and cooked for about 10 minutes on both sides.
