Method

For the raita, combine the yogurt, cucumber, onion, cilantro, cumin, ginger, salt and pepper in a medium bowl and set aside.

For the burgers, prepare a grill for medium heat cooking. 

Combine the spices and lamb in a medium bowl and shape into four patties. 

Grill burgers, flipping once, until meat reaches desired degree of doneness (3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare, 5 minutes per side for medium and 6 to 7 minutes per side for well done). 

Tuck lettuce and lamb burgers into pita pockets and top each with a generous spoonful of raita; serve remaining raita on the side.
