1

In large skillet heat half of oil over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until soft and translucent; do not brown. Cool.

In medium bowl, combine cooled onions, mushrooms, red chile and garlic pastes, black pepper and ground turkey. Form into large patties and press an indentation in the center of each.

Add remaining oil to skillet and coat. Cook patties for 7 to 10 minutes, flipping to avoid charring. Remove from heat when center of patties reach 165 degrees F.
