Salt to taste
HOW TO PREPARE THE CHICKPEAS CURRY
I toasted the seeds (black mustard, cumin, coriander and nigella) in a large pot for a couple of minutes, lowered the heat and added the coconut oil and curry powder, toasting for another couple of minutes.
Meanwhile, I blended the onion, ginger and garlic, peeled and cut into chunks. I added the mixture to the spices in the pot and sautéed for 5 minutes adding a few tablespoons of water to keep it from sticking. At this point I salted, combined the chickpeas with their standing water and dried over a high flame for 5 minutes. I also added the peeled tomatoes and coconut milk and continued cooking until the desired consistency was obtained (I like it rather dry, but there are those who love it very liquid).
I served with a sprinkling of pepper and parsley (or coriander) to taste, accompanying the curry with Basmati rice.
This veal curry burger has all the flavor and color of Indian spices thanks to the delicious Madras curry sauce.
That of the curry burger is a simple recipe to make and of great effect, to be personalized with your favorite curry spice blend. I have always loved Madras curry, a mixture based on turmeric, coriander, cumin, fenugreek, paprika, pepper, mustard seeds, chilli, ginger, fennel seeds, garlic and cardamom.
I like to make the sauce with Greek yogurt, to make it creamy and light. But if you want to try a variant of Greek yogurt, I invite you to taste mine curry mayonnaise.
You can also use different types of meat for your burger, from chicken to beef, through lamb or turkey. I wanted to use the veal burger from the veal of Casa Vercelli.
This product is obtained only from the meat of fine calves, born, raised and selected in Italy, this minced meat is tasty and versatile, suitable for many recipes. It is digestible, has very little fat and a high content of proteins and amino acids.

HOW TO PREPARE THE CURRY BURGER
First, I peeled the red onion and cut it into wedges. I placed it on a baking sheet covered with baking paper, sprinkled with seed oil, sprinkled with paprika and seasoned with salt and pepper. I baked for 25 minutes in a hot oven at 200 degrees.
In the meantime, I cooked the 2 veal burgers without seasoning on a very hot grill pan for 8 minutes, turning them halfway through cooking.
Meanwhile, I mixed the curry spice mixture with the oil and Greek yogurt until the mixture was smooth and homogeneous.
Finally, I dressed the salad with oil, chopped coriander, lime juice, salt and pepper. If you don't like fresh coriander you can replace it with simple parsley
Everything is ready to whip up our curry burger: bread, curry sauce, veal burger, baked onions and lime salad.
