- ¼ red onion, sliced
- measuring spoons
- small skillet
- mortar and pestle

- mixing spoon
- 12" skillet or barbecue grill
- Heat skillet and add cumin seeds, shaking them around until they release their fragrance, about one minute. Transfer to a mortar and pestle and grind.
- Mix all ingredients in a bowl except olive oil. The mixture will be sticky to handle. Add olive oil to your hands and make 5 equal patties.
- Preheat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat and add patties in one at a time. Cook for 4-5 minutes each side or until thermometer reads 165° F. For barbecue grill directions: preheat grill to 400° F and add patties to grill and grill both sides for 4-5 minutes till fully cooked.
- Hamburger buns can be toasted on the grill or in a toaster oven.
- Have all your toppings prepared in advance and serve burgers immediately! Enjoy!
