I have created two blogs to share my passion of food and fashion with you. The idea is not to give you accurate recipes or tell you what to wear but to share my day to day cooking and shopping experiences with you. I hope you will get new ideas from my blog and that you will share your experiences with me. I have always been creative with everything in my life be it food, clothes or career. I like trying new things,and I am always up for trying things once in my life.

Lentil Patty

Lentils - This weekend I had this sudden urge to have a traditional Indian meal - rice, dal and a potato curry - but unfortunately I had only a tiny portion of lentils in my cupboard. So I though I will use the lentil to make these delicious patty and have them with home made chapattis and chutney - nice!!
  • 2 cups cooked lentils, well drained and not too soft
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 mashed potatoes (seasoned)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable butter
  • Scant½ teaspoon sage or sweet marjoram
  1. Put onion, and vegetable butter into a small pan, and let simmer for a few minutes over heat to soften the onion, but do not brown.
  2. Add the cooked and drained lentils, shake together, and mix with the mashed potato.
  3. Form into small, round patty cakes, and brown lightly in a quick oven or in an oiled skillet.
