Heat oil in a frying pan and cook onions gently until soft and lightly coloured.  Add ginger, garlic and chillies, along with a splash of water if the pan is a little dry.  Cook until softened and liquid evaporated.  Transfer mixture to a plate to cool.
Put beef mince into a mixing bowl, add the onion  mixture and all remaining ingredients and mix well.  Shape into burgers and cook your usual way.

Serve with any spicy relish – e.g. mango chutney
