Method
  • Preheat your grill. Place the lamb mince into a large bowl, then add garlic and sprinkle in the cumin and coriander along with a good pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Divide the mixture into two large, thin patties, then lay them on a baking tray and place them on the grill. Cook for about 5 minutes on each side.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium to high heat. When hot, carefully add the aubergine slices and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until they are slightly softened and browned. Remove the slices and season with a little salt and pepper.
  • To construct your burger, place a slice of aubergine on a plate, top with one of the lamb patties, then stack the cucumber and red onion slices on top. Place the Greek yoghurt on top and scatter with mint leaves before adding another layer of aubergine. Repeat the stack with the second patty and remaining ingredients.
