Asian style chicken burgers

A good friend of mine shared a recipe for some Asian style chicken burgers, so I altered it to suit my families taste. I don't have a picture because we ate them right away :P They were served on some nice fresh bread rolls, with salad.

Makes around 6 burgers

400-500gms chicken mince (ground chicken)
1 large garlic clove (or 2 smaller ones) finely chopped or crushed
1/2 brown onion finely chopped
1 small grated carrot
1 small tin of sweet corn kernals
1 tablespoon dried coriander leaves (cilantro) you can use fresh, but I am not a huge fan of coriander
1 tiny pinch of chili flakes (dry)
1 egg
1 cup bread crumbs
1 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
some flour to dust over the burgers

In a bowl place all the ingredients and mix well to combine. Form burgers, about the general size of a normal burger you would get from a take-away place and lightly cover it with some plain flour. Heat some olive oil in a pan and fry the burgers until cooked (just make a small cut in the middle to see if the meat is white or still pink)
You can serve with some sweet chili sauce, or the kids had tomato sauce (ketchup) and loved that too.
The original recipe from my friend had water chestnuts, and no carrot or corn, so you could try what you like. Grated zuchhini would work well too.
