Tandoori Chicken Burgers

Since I have started blogging, my cooking vocabulary has grown, slowly but surely.  I have made some major mistakes because of my ignorance of a word but I have overcome that.  I have also stopped being embarrassed when I make one of those errors.  Learning is how we grow as individuals and learning often comes from making mistakes. 

It is all those times, that I have made bloopers that I have managed to improve myself, simply by not doing it again.  I have also smartened up, enough, to look up words when I am not sure of them or I am a complete blank.  That is why I found out something about “Tandoori” and that it is made in a tandoor, a special brick oven.  Wise Geek assures us that we can make this Indian dish, at home, although the flavor might be somewhat different.

I found the recipe, I used at Baked Bree, and it was for burgers.  I have no idea if one can authentically make a Tandoori Burger but she did and I did.  Since, we do not eat milk and meat together, at the same time, I did not make the yogurt sauce to go with this burger but the recipe can be found at Baked Bree.

Chicken burgers are a pure joy.  My husband grilled ours and he had the unique problem of not hearing it sizzle.  There was almost no fat in the ground chopped chicken breast, I made these from.  I did find, when finished making the recipe, that the chopped chicken would not hold its form so I added some ground potato chips and some gluten-free flour, just enough to be able to form a patty.  These were certainly tasty.
