This recipe uses chick peas instead of lentils but tastes very good and is low in fat and no meat products:

Yield: 4 servings

  • 1 440 g can chickpeas; drained and pureed
  • 1/2 medium onion; grated
  • 1 medium carrot; grated
  • 2 tablespoons Indian relish or pickle
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 3 tablespoons oatmeal
  • flour; to coat
  • 1 tablespoon oil
Thoroughly mix the first 8 ingredients and shape into 8 balls. Flatten into burger shapes and coat with a little flour.

Heat the oil and fry the burgers in batches for 10-12 minutes. Serve with a tomato and cucumber salad.
