  1. Work the spices and garlic (if using) into the minced lamb, season with salt and pepper, then shape into 4 burgers.
  2. Brush the patties with a little oil and fry or barbecue for about 5 min on each side, or until cooked all the way through.
  3. To make the tzatziki, squeeze and discard the juice from the grated cucumber, then mix into the yoghurt along with the chopped mint and a little salt.
  4. Serve in the buns (toasted if you like) with the tzatziki, tomato, lettuce, red onion and a few mint leaves. We also like to add a slice of grilled halloumi for an extra flavour boost.
