MOO Dahi Beef Burgers

As summer looms, the BBQ beckons and I am always drawn in. Longer days, warmer nights and the smell of charred meat makes entertaining so much more fun.
For my family, a Christmas BBQ is the staple. Lamb chops, sausages, chicken and when we are lucky homemade burgers. While I love cooking a homemade burger, I am an overcooking culprit and often end up with a dry patty.
So I tried adding yoghurt to bind and provide some more moisture to the patty. And oh did it work.

MOO Dahi yoghurt Kenyan chicken curry

In an attempt to mix up our weekly meals, Mr Bball and I have started a tradition. Sunday night is country night. We are working our way through the alphabet, selecting a meal from one country per letter. So far we have made the good ole Aussie pie, Brazilian beef, Cuban sandwiches, Danish meatballs, Ethiopian chicken (the best so far), French beef bourguignon, German Currywurst, Haitian beef skewers, Italian pizza, Jordanian Maqluba and we have just completed K, using my MOO yoghurt bounty to create a spicy and light Kenyan chicken curry. This curry has a lovely tomato, creamy flavour with a punch. Warning, it isn’t for the faint hearted. We were sweating. Ingredients 2 teaspoons of grated ginger 4 garlic cloves 2 teaspoons ground turmeric Juice of 2 lemons ¼ cup of vegetable oil 1 teaspoon ground cumin 3 teaspoons garam masala 1 tablespoon ground coriander 1 teaspoon paprika 1 ½ teaspoon chili flakes ¼ cup of MOO Dahi yoghurt 600g chicken 2 brown onions 2 teaspoon chili powder 1 teaspoon of ground…
