Turkey patties with chilli yoghurt sauce

Turkey mince is a great alternative to beef and chicken and is a great option for those looking for a healthier choice come dinner time. These patties were whipped up in a flash and served with easy vegetable fried rice, but you could also pair them with a fresh salad or even make burgers out of them! The fresh herbs really come through here and the chilli yogurt is the perfect finish to tie it all together.


  • 500g turkey mince
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 clove of crushed garlic
  • ½ tsp chilli (fresh or flakes or powder)
  • ½ tsp parsley
  • ½ tsp chives
  • 1 tbsp grated carrot (optional)
  • 2 tbsp semolina (bread crumbs)
  • 1 egg


  • 200g natural yoghurt
  • 1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce


1. Mix all the ingredients together and knead a little using a spoon (or your hands if you so desire). Cover and rest in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

2. Remove the mix from the refrigerator and with wet hands (or food-safe gloves) form the mixture into small flat patties about 3cm (1.15 inches). Place on a flat tray and return to the refrigerator until needed.

3. Heat a non-stick frying pan or barbecue until hot. Place oil in the pan or on the barbecue plate and brush each of the patties with a bit of oil. Grill for two minutes on each side, or until cooked through. Meanwhile, mix yoghurt and sweet chilli sauce together in a bowl, then set aside.

4. Serve with a vegetable fried rice, like here, or with a fresh salad and a dollop of chilli yoghurt sauce.
