In a bowl combine bread crumbs, garam masala, salt, and ground red pepper. Add chicken and yogurt; mix well. Shape the chicken mixture into four 3/4-inch-thick patties.
For a charcoal grill, grill burgers on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 14 to 18 minutes or until no longer pink (165 degree F), turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place burgers on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.) Remove burgers from grill. Serve burgers on toasted buns with Minty Cucumbers and kale or lettuce. Makes 4 servings.
