Indian Spiced Sliders with Curried Mayonnaise

IndianSpicedSliders 430-5

Ginger, cumin, garlic, and cilantro are separately four of my favorite flavorings, but together become a taste that I crave. So this Memorial Day weekend,I will make a batch of these well-seasoned sliders for a snack that the family can enjoy when we’re just hanging around the house. Sadly for my kids, for much of the weekend they will be studying for finals—but these will go well with any sighs of martyrdom that might slip out while they are working. My husband can have one while he takes a break from processing the photos for his website and I will snack on mine while working my way through this weekend’s stack of books—I’m reading Andrew Ross Sorkin’s Too Big to Fail (maddening story!), and when I want a break from my fury with Wall Street—I plan to cool my jets with the Rosie Project by Graeme Simson, and browsing through Ripe, a luscious ode to cooking fruit by Nigel Slater.

Heat a grill pan to medium or the broiler to high. Brush the pan with a bit of olive oil and add the patties. Cook until done—about 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Put the patties on the bottom half of the rolls and top with a spoonful of curried mayonnaise a slice of tomato and a slice of red onion.

We ate a lot of canned fruits and vegetables from the military P/X in those days—not much to remember about those items except they tasted great to childhood me even though they were mushy and laden with either sugary syrup or lots of salt. …Continue reading: White Asparagus Gratin
