Indian Lentil Burgers With Dill Yogurt Sauce [Vegan, Grain-Free]


For the Burgers:

  • 1 large red beet
  • 1 1/2 cups of cooked lentils
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup olive/coconut oil

For the Sauce:

  • 1 cup of vegan yogurt
  • 2 teaspoon dill
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon agave or other natural sweetener
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Combine all of the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Peel and roughly chop the beet. Place into a food processor and pulse until it’s in small pieces.
  3. Add the lentils, curry powder, cumin, turmeric, dill, salt, and garlic. Pulse again until the mixture becomes quite coarse and holds together.
  4. Heat the oil in a skillet. Form burger shapes of the beet/lentil mixture and place on the hot skillet. Use wet hands to make this shaping process easier. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Next, flip over to the other side and cook for another 2-3 minutes until the burger is golden and heated throughout.
  5. Serve the burgers in buns with shredded greens, sliced tomatoes and avocado, and the lemon dill sauce.





Traditional, plant-based Indian food. I’m Preeti, an Indian food blogger and creator of Go Cook! My mother was an incredible cook and taught me everything I know about traditional Indian food. I taught myself how to photograph it, but she can take a lot of credit for the dishes I create. Her lessons in the kitchen are some of the best memories of my childhood, and it’s what inspired me to share her recipes with the world.
