Curry Burger

Malaysian Curry Burger: marinated Malaysian curry beef-onion patty, topped with curried onions, tomato and spicy sour cream

Authentic Curry with a Twist

Growing up, Mama Lam always made Malaysian curry chicken or Malaysian curry noodle soup, which were both delicious dishes. When we started Mama Lam’s, we learned of all the new ways that people using our curry paste, which inspired us to get creative with our curry paste and hot sauce.

We decided to make a curry flavored burger by marinating the ground beef and diced onions with Malaysian curry paste. Then, topping it with one slice of tomato and curried onions for additional flavor.

You’ll see in this recipe that we make a spicy sour cream to spread on the burger buns. This is spicy and light and adds a kick to the burger.

The results were beyond our expectations! So, give it try and let us know what you think.
