Use a rice cooker if you have one to cook the rice for you while you get everything else done. If you have time, mix the burger patties, shape it, and chill it. That way the patties absorbs the flavours of the herbs and spices, and the chilling firms it up so it doesn’t fall a part when pan-frying.
