  • bulgar or wheat 4 tbsp
  • lamb or mince 150g
  • ground or cumin 1 tsp
  • oil
  • onion 1, cut into thick slices
  • wholemeal or pitta 2 toasted
  • houmous or tzatziki to serve
  • green or salad or leaves to serve


  • Step 1

    Cook the bulgar wheat in simmering water for 5 minutes or until tender. Rinse in cold water and drain. Mix with the lamb mince and ground cumin and season well. Shape into 4 large or 8 small patties.

    Heat a little oil in a frying pan and cook the patties and onion rounds in a single layer. The lamb will need about 4-5 minutes on each side but the onion may cook a little quicker. Stuff the pitta with the lamb burgers and onions and serve with houmous or tzatziki and a few salad leaves.
