curry turkey burgers

Brad and I are HUGE curry fans so when I stumbled upon this recipe in an email from Whole Foods, I couldn't wait to try it. The combination of ginger & cilantro & curry is absolutely delicious while the raisins add a slightly sweet note. This recipe made 6 burgers and suggested eating on a bun with lettuce, tomato & red onion (which I'm always a fan of) - absolutely delicious! In fact, we may try these in meatball form for our upcoming Christmas Party...any suggestions for a sauce for them?

curry turkey burgers
1/3 cup plain Panko breadcrumbs (we used oatmeal)
1/3 cup grated carrot
1/3 cup seedless raisins
1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
1 tablespoon mild curry powder
1/2 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 pounds ground dark meat turkey

In a medium bowl thoroughly combine breadcrumbs, carrots, raisins, cilantro, curry powder, ginger, salt and pepper. Add turkey and gently bring all ingredients together with your hands, being careful not to overwork the meat. With dampened hands, form turkey mixture into 6 patties of even thickness. Arrange patties on a lined baking sheet, cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Light the grill or preheat the broiler. Cook burgers, turning once with a spatula, for 6 minutes per side, or until no longer pink inside. (We cooked on the stove top on our grill pan).
