Take the chicken mince a big mixing bowl and add in the chopped ginger and garlic, salt, chilli flakes, chopped green chilli, grated cheese, garam masala, oil, mint and coriander leaves. Mix this well.

To make the patties, portion out the mixture according to your choice of size, press to remove any air bubbles and roll into balls. Shape the balls into a patty,. Make sure the diameter of the patty is a little bigger than that of the buns as the patty will shrink during cooking.

To cook the patties, heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Heat the pan well before placing the patties on it. Flip the patty once it is half way cooked and develops a brown colour at the bottom. Cover with a lid and lower the heat. Cook until the patties are well cooked till the center. Remove from heat and keep aside to assemble.

To make the garlic sauce, take the mayonnaise in a mixing bowl and add in the cheese spread, chopped garlic, milk or water, chilli flakes and kasoori methi. Mix well and reserve for assembly.


Start by cutting the burger buns from the center. Spread butter on each side of the cut. On a hot pan brown the buttered side of the buns by pressing slightly until the buttered side is crispy. To assemble but the bottom half of the bun and spread a little mustard. Next, put a salad leaf on top of it and then the chicken patty. Top it with sliced onions, tomatoes, gherkin, garlic chilli sauce and cheese slice.

Finish by topping up with some pepper and the top half of the bun. Serve with some extra garlic chilli sauce and a side of French fries or potato wedges.
