Recipe Notes: I only made 1/2 a recipe of Raita b/c I wasn’t sure anyone would eat it but me (Dewey hates cucumbers). We both ate it but we still had lots. The last burger might be light on raita though. The original recipe called for Tandori paste which I couldn’t find. This recipe makes burgers that have a tandoori taste but are not spicy at all. I might add a little more spice next time. I made a burger with all ingredients except the spice for Evan. He ate it with bbq sauce dip & liked it.
