Curried Burgers with Chutney Sauce

Burgers are a backyard passion, but—dare we admit it?—sometimes the passion wears a little thin. But once the patties are spiked with curry powder and topped with a creamy chutney sauce, the old spark is back and everyone’s happy at the table.

Serves 4

Prep Time 15 min

Total Time 25 min.


  • 2 tablespoon low-fat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoon reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mango chutney
  • 1/2 teaspoon curry powder, divided
  • 1/2 pound lean ground pork
  • 1/2 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup fresh breadcrumbs, (see Tip)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 whole-wheat hamburger buns, toasted
  • 1 cup stemmed watercress leaves

Cooking Directions

Step 1

To prepare sauce: Mix 2 tablespoons yogurt, mayonnaise, chutney and 1/2 teaspoon curry powder in a small bowl. Cover and chill.

Step 2

To prepare burgers: Preheat grill to medium-high or preheat broiler.

Step 3

Combine pork, turkey, breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup yogurt, 2 tablespoons curry powder, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.

Step 4

Grill or broil the patties until no longer pink inside and an instant-read thermometer reads at least 160°F, about 5 minutes per side. Serve the burgers on buns, topped with the sauce and watercress.
