Do-Ahead
Mix and shape the meat patties the night before, and make the sauce, too. It’ll be smooth sailing at dinnertime.
Variation
Stir some chopped cucumber into the sauce. The result is very similar to raita, a refreshing dish from northern India that’s often served as a relish with curried foods.
