Lemongrass-Ginger_Patties How:
  1. Place the meat in a bowl and sprinkle with the turmeric.
  2. In a large mortar or a food processor, combine the, garlic, shallots, and salt and pound or pulse until they become a rough paste. Add lemongrass and ginger essential oils and stir through thoroughly.
  3. Next, add the rice, cayenne, and tomatoes and pound or pulse again to the spice paste. Add the paste to the meat and zucchini and mix well, kneading them together.
  4. Shape the mixture into balls about 1 inch in diameter, then gently press each into a thick patty.
  5. Place a heavy skillet over high heat. Add your preferred oil, lower the heat very slightly, and then add the patties. (If the patties release water, raise the heat to evaporate it.) Cook for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or to your desired doneness.
  6. Serve warm with Tzatziki dip and lemon wedges
