How to Make It

Combine sugar and vinegar in a saucepan and bring to a simmer until sugar dissolves. Cool slightly before adding mixture to  cucumber slices to pickle for at least 20 minutes.

Preheat grill and plancha, or cast-iron pan, to medium-high heat.

Mix turkey, garlic, ginger, onions, turmeric, jalapeño, fish sauce, lime juice and salt in a large bowl. Form four evenly sized patties. Drizzle sesame oil over the plancha and grill patties for four minutes per side until fully cooked or until internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). Allow to rest for a few minutes before serving.

Mix mayonnaise and sriracha sauce together. Spread one tablespoon of mayonnaise mixture on both top and bottom of each bun. Place pickled cucumber slices on the bottom bun and place burger on top. Top the burger with basil and mint leaves.
