Curried Lamb Burgers with Grilled Vegetables and Mint Raita

['1 cup plain whole-milk yogurt (preferably Greek-style)', '3 tablespoons chopped fresh mint', '2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro', '1 1/4 teaspoons finely grated lime peel', 'Coarse kosher salt', '4 tablespoons olive oil, divided', '1 1/4 cups chopped onion', '2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger', '2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt, divided', '2 teaspoons Madras curry powder', '1 3/4 pounds ground lamb', '3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro', '1 1/2 teaspoons cracked black pepper, divided', '3 medium zucchini (about 12 ounces), cut lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick slices', '6 green onions, trimmed', '1 fresh poblano chile,* quartered, seeded', '6 small naans (Indian flatbreads; about 6 inches long) or pita breads', '1 large tomato', 'thinly sliced']

Mix yogurt, mint, cilantro, and lime peel in small bowl. Season to taste with coarse salt and pepper. Cover; chill until cold, at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours.
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, ginger, and 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt. Sauté until onion is tender, about 8 minutes. Mix in curry powder and stir 30 seconds. Remove from heat. Cool onion mixture to room temperature, at least 15 minutes.
Place lamb in large bowl. Add onion mixture, 1 teaspoon coarse salt, cilantro, and 1 teaspoon cracked pepper. Blend mixture gently; shape into six 1/2-inch-thick patties.
Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Combine zucchini, green onions, and chile in another large bowl. Add 2 tablespoons oil, 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/2 teaspoon cracked pepper; toss to coat. Place vegetables and burgers on grill. Cook until grill marks appear, about 4 minutes. Turn vegetables and burgers over. Cook vegetables until tender, about 3 minutes. Cook burgers to desired doneness, about 4 minutes for medium-rare. Cut zucchini and green onions crosswise into 2-inch-long pieces. Cut chile into thin strips.
Place breads on plates; top with burgers and tomato slices. Mound vegetables on burgers; spoon dollop of raita over. Fold bread up around burgers and serve with remaining raita.
* Often called a pasilla; available at some supermarkets and at specialty foods stores and Latin markets.
