Recipe Redux: Indian Spiced Turkey Patties w/ Cashew Coconut Mango Chutney

Indian Spiced Turkey Patties with Cashew Coconut Mango Chutney Spice up your life with these Indian Spiced Turkey Burgers with Cashew Coconut Mango Chutney!

I think I’ve come to the brilliant conclusion, that in this world there are  two types of cooks.  Those that are flippers, and those that are not.


I’m pretty sure I belong with the non-flipping crowd.

And by non-flipping, I mean patties. Veggie patties to be precise.

Oh sure, I can flip a mean pancake, but give me a {homemade} veggie patty to flip, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to destroy it.

But, on the flip side {pun intended}, I’m pretty sure that, given enough time {after the kids have gone off to college and I’ve retired from whatever it is that I do these days}, I could most definitely master the art of veggie patty flipping.

But clearly you are hungry right now.

Indian Spiced Turkey Patties with Cashew Coconut Mango ChutneyRight???

So if you want veggie patties, I suggest you try my favorite gluten-free Hilary’s Veggie Burgers, OR scroll down immediately to the bottom of this page, and check out all the fabulous patties my Recipe ReDux friends have created.

No, wait!

Don’t scroll yet!!!

Even if you don’t eat meat, you’ll DEFINITELY want to make this Cashew Coconut Mango Chutney {ok, it’s really more like a salsa}, because it is SO fresh and yummy. Then you can put it on any veggie patty of your choice.

Fresh Coconut Cashew Mango ChutneyBut….

If you’re open to eating meat.

As in turkey…

Definitely try this chutney on my perfectly flipped Indian Spiced Turkey Patties, because I think you’re going to love them!

While St. Patty’s Day will be over by the time The Recipe ReDux rolls around this month, we’re celebrating the ‘patty’ all month long. We’ve seen images of stacked patties go crazy on food photo sharing sites like; so stack ‘em up! Think healthy tuna burgers, potato patties, or veggie stacks.

  1. Love the Indian spices in your patties EA and the bright beautiful photos!

  2. I guess I would have to say I am an equal opportunity flipper 🙂 I love this combination for sure. Especially the addition of the coconut in the chutney.

  3. I love mango and am always looking for new ways to use it; your chutney is on my list of ‘new things to try with mango’. Btw, very pretty photos!!!

  4. Drool- your use of ingredients is wonderful! Plus beautiful pics 🙂

  5. This [almost] makes me want to start eating meat again. I bet I can use the chutney recipe on a variety of veggie dishes and it would be fabulous.

  6. Oh my yum! Mango coconut chutney!! Brilliant..absolutely brilliant, EA! How do you come up with all these amazing ideas? I must analyze your brain ;). Can’t wait to make this!
