Directions: How to Cook Indian Beef Patties In Pitas With Cucumber Yogurt

TO PREPARE: For the patties, mince first 4 ingredients in a food processor. Add the onions; pulse until minced. Add the ground beef, cumin, and 1 teaspoon salt; pulse to combine.

Make the Cucumber Yogurt recipe: Mix cucmbers and yogurt in a small bowl; set aside.

TO COOK: Heat the broiler. Divide ground beef mixture into 8 portions. Form each portion into a patty, 3 inches in diameter. Transfer patties to a broiling pan. Broil patties, turning once, until they are browned on both sides, about 6 minutes.

TO SERVE: Place 2 beef patties into each pita bread. Then, spoon a portion of the Cucumber Yogurt into each Indian Beef Patty Pocket. Serve immediately.

NOTES : A Subcontinental spin on Gyros, about as easy as hamburgers. You can substitute ground lamb or chicken for the beef in these meat patties. Or you can substitute 1-inch cubes of lamb, chicken, fish or beef for the ground meat patties and use the remaining patty ingredients listed as a marinade for the meat or fish cubes, which are then broiled.
