Instructions

  1. Prepare the pickled vegetable

    • In a small saucepan, pour in the vinegar, water, sugar and salt. Bring it to a light boil for all the ingredients to incorporate together.
    • Using a grater, finely slice radish, red onion and cucumber into thin strips lengthwise. Slit only the end of the green chili.
    • Put all the vegetable slices into a jar, and pour in the vinegar mix, fully submerging the vegetables.
    • Leave it aside for about 2 hours, or until the mix comes to room temperature, before sealing the jar and keeping it refrigerated for as long as a month

  2. Make the burger patty

    • Preheat oven at 180°C.
    • Rinse, clean and pat dry the thigh meat.
    • In a bowl, mix all the marinade ingredients together to a thick paste - add in ginger paste, garlic paste, black pepper, salt, chili powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, cooking oil and lime juice.
    • Evenly coat the chicken thigh with a generous amount of marinade. Set aside in the chiller for at least 2 hours. (This step can be done 1 day beforehand as it’s best to be marinated overnight)
    • Heat up a flat pan to sear the chicken thigh on both sides for 5 minutes each, enough just to crisp the flesh and seal the juices in.
    • Transfer the thighs to a roasting pan lined with aluminum foil. Roast in the oven for 15 minutes at 180°C.
    • When it’s almost done, pop out the tray and place sliced cheese on the patty, and back into the oven for a minute, or until the cheese has melted over the patty.

  3. Prepare the yogurt dressing

    • Finely chop fresh coriander and mint leaves.
    • Into a bowl, add in the yogurt, coriander leaves, mint leaves, black pepper, salt and lime juice.
    • Whisk it together well and adjust seasoning here if need be.
