Enjoying a burger outdoors is one of the finest pleasures of summer. The aroma of these BBQ Madras Burgers on the grill will get you good and hungry before your first bite.


  • 500g lean ground beef
  • 3/5 cup Patak's Madras Curry Paste
  • ½ onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 12 mint leaves, finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 pineapple rings
  • 2 sliced of Swiss cheese
  • 2 Tbsp Patak’s Major Grey Chutney
  • 2 large Naan breads
  • lettuce
  • cucumber slices


  1. In a medium bowl, combine beef with Madras Curry Paste, onion, breadcrumbs, egg, and mint. Mix well, cover with plastic wrap and marinate in fridge at least 1 hour and up to 24 hours.
  2. Form patties. Heat grill to medium-high and brush with oil. Cook patties until thoroughly heated through. Top each patty with cheese before removing from grill.
  3. Grill pineapple rings about 1 minute per side. Heat Naan bread on grill too if desired.
  4. To build each burger, arrange the lettuce, cucumber and patty on one half of the Naan bread, top with a pineapple ring and 1 Tbsp chutney. Fold the other half of the Naan bread over for easy handling.


For a less intense heat, replace the Madras Curry Paste with Mild Curry Paste, or top each burger with a dollop of Greek yogurt. Substitute with any Curry Paste as an alternative to Madras.
