  2. Add all the other ingredients and, with clean hands, mix well. Divide and shape the mixture into 12 patties and lay them on a baking sheet.
  3. Put the baking sheet in the fridge and chill the patties for 1 hour, removing them from the fridge 30 minutes before you’re ready to cook them. To braai, make sure the coals are hot but mostly white and the grill is also very hot.

  6. Alternatively, preheat the braai to medium-high. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay a grill rack on top.
