Next, mix together 1 pound ground turkey, 1/2 cup finely chopped onion, 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro, 1 teaspoon garam masala, 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Form the mixture into four patties and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients.

Mix these ingredients together until they are well blended. Then, form the mixture into four patties. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add a tablespoon of oil.

3. Mix the ingredients together until they are well combined.

Mixing the ingredients together is the final step in creating Indian Turkey Burgers with Lime, Cucumbers, and Chutney. Begin by gathering all the ingredients: ground turkey, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, cayenne pepper, lime zest, lime juice, cucumbers, and chutney.

In a large bowl, combine the ground turkey, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, and cayenne pepper. Use your hands to mix the ingredients together until they are well combined. Once the ingredients are blended, add the lime zest and juice and mix until they are fully incorporated.

4. Form the mixture into 4 equal-sized patties.

To ensure that the patties are the same size, use a measuring cup or spoon to measure out the same amount of mixture for each patty. Once the patties are formed, place them on a plate and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

This will help the patties hold their shape when cooked. After the patties have chilled, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add a tablespoon of oil to the skillet and cook the patties for 4-5 minutes per side, or until they are cooked through.

5. Place the patties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

For the chutney, combine mango chutney, garlic, ginger, and cilantro in a bowl. Once the patties are cooked, assemble the burgers.

While the patties are baking, prepare the chutney by combining 1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup of mango chutney, 1 tablespoon of lime juice, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in a small bowl.

When the patties are done, assemble the burgers by spreading the chutney on the buns, topping them with the patties, and adding thin slices of cucumber and lime.
