DIRECTIONS

  • Boil lentils with stock powder in water until soft, 30-40 minutes. Drain.
  • Use 2 tablespoons of oil to fry the garlic and onion until softened. Reduce heat to low.
  • Add the curry powder, turmeric, lemon juice, sugar, mixed herbs, taragon, carraway seeds, coriander and ginger.
  • Add the lentils and mix through thoroughly. Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely. (For best flavour refrigerate overnight).
  • Combine the chickpeas, half of the lentil mix and the egg in a food processor until smooth.
  • Transfer to a bowl, add the remaining lentil mix, coconut and breadcrumbs. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until combined well.
  • Shape the mixture into burgers, approximately 1 inch thick and 3 inches across. Toss in a little flour, brush excess off.
  • To Fry: Fry on low-med heat for approximately 3-4 minutes each side or until golden.
  • To bake: Preheat oven at 250c. Place on a tray with a sheet of baking paper. Spray with oil on all floured areas. Bake for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes or until golden.
