- If you don’t have a mortar you can also use a food processor. Season with salt to taste.
- Knead the minced chicken, grated courgette, egg and spring onions in a mixing bowl and add your curry paste. Season to taste with salt. (Note that the mixture is quite wet).
- Shape into 10 miniature burger patties and place in the fridge for 30 minutes to firm slightly.
- Heat some oil in a frying pan and fry the mini burgers until lightly golden brown, cooked and crispy.
