Tandoori Turkey Escallop Burgers with Minted Yoghurt
You can make your own Tandoori marsala mix but my recipe uses prepared Tandoori marinade which you can buy in any good supermarket. You need to marinate the turkey for at least two hours but if can prepare ahead and leave in the refrigerator over night for the best results.

1smallbunch of Spring Onionswashed, trimmed and very finely sliced
1tablespoonon prepared Mint Sauce
A good pinch of fine Sea Salt and freshly ground Black Pepper
4sliced Brioche Bread Rolls

In a large glass bowl mix together, the ingredients for the Tandoori Turkey marinade then add the turkey escallops and make sure they are all covered with the marinade. Cover with cling-film and leave in the refrigerator for at least a couple of hours.
Preheat your oven to 425 F / 220 C / Gas mark 7. Line a deep-sided baking tray with baking parchment and drizzle with the vegetable oil. Lay on the marinated turkey burgers and place in the oven and cook for twenty minutes.
Carefully take out of the oven and using a small sharp knife slice into the middle of one escallop to check if it is cooked, if not place back in the oven for another five minutes.
While the turkey is cooking prepare your minted yoghurt by mixing all the ingredients together in a small bowl and toast your Brioche bread rolls. Spread each roll with a little mango chutney and top with lettuce, tomato and a turkey burger. Spoon some yoghurt onto each burger and place on the other half of the Brioche roll. Served with some oven baked potato fries.
