Indulge in Cyrus’s melt-in-the-middle lamb burgers with blue cheese for a dinner that’s packed with flavour. Serve with your favourite bread or rolls with sliced tomatoes, onion and lettuce.

"Burgers might be an American invention or creation but the Kebab or Kavaab is very Indian, Persian, Turkish, Lebanese and so on. In India the burger would be actually a kebab of sorts.

"I simply had to devise a burger with spices. It is simple to put together and just shows what you can do if you think just a little bit differently. So be brave and create - perhaps you will make many more combinations and bring out the best in the lamb you buy. Enjoy!"

Step 2

In a small bowl blend the stuffing ingredients together and shape into equal-sized balls to stuff the burgers.


Step 3

Make an indentation in the centre of each burger with your thumb and fill with a ball of the cheese. Make sure the cheese is completely encased when you form the burger.


Step 4

Cook on a prepared grill or barbecue for 6-8 minutes on each side or until any meat juices run clear.


Step 5

Serve with your favourite bread or rolls with some sliced tomatoes, onion and lettuce and some relish.
