Indian Spiced Lamb Burgers

There is a restaurant in South Boston that has the best Greek-style lamb burgers that we go to time and time again. I knew I could never recreate those to perfection, so I decided to make an Indian spiced burger instead. These will not disappoint- very flavorful with just the right amount of spice. I served mine alongside these roasted carrots and grapes. Enjoy!
