Pan fry the onion in a dash of oil until tender.
Add the tandoori paste and cook stirring for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Cool.
In a bowl, mix together the cooked onion mixture, mince, breadcrumbs, yoghurt and coriander with a seasoning of salt and pepper.
Use wet hands to mould into 4-5 even-sized patties.
Cook over a moderate-high heat on a greased barbecue or in a frying pan for 5-7 minutes on each side until the burgers are cooked.
Cooking time will be dependent on how thick the burgers are.
Alternatively cook under a grill.
Combine the chilli, red onion and coriander for the salsa.
Serve the burgers on warm naan bread with slices of mango or cucumber with a little Chilli Salsa and mango chutney if wished.
