When curry meets burger

Last week I shared a recipe for cookies by Sunny Anderson. Well that same show that had the cookies also featured burger that made my mouth water. I love Indian food and anything curry. It’s been a cold winter here in Connecticut and the spices of a curry warm me up in a wonderful way.

I immediately put it on my menu planner. It didn’t disappoint. She served it up with homemade sweet potato and celery root fries. I’ll have to try those another time as that sounded perfect. I confess to serving these up with regular fries.

I could see using the ketchup on regular burgers too. It might be good to make a batch up and place in a jar for use on all kinds of things. Fries included.

Sadly my pictures of this tasty burger are missing. They turned out great and I had fun cooking them up with the help of my oldest son who is all about burgers. Cooking with your kids makes everything taste better! Even if he is a grown man.

If you make these up, I’d love to hear how you enjoyed them.
