Crumbed lentil and chickpea patties



15 piece(s)

  • 1 can lentils, drained
  • 1 can Chickpeas, drained
  • 1 bunch parsley, Small
  • 1 heaped tablespoons coriander, fresh
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • to taste salt
  • 1 onion
  • 1 small piece ginger
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 100 grams fresh breadcrumbs, See method herein
  • olive oil spray, for frying

To make breadcrumbs

  • 100 g bread

Recipe's preparation

  1. 1. Firstly for the breadcrumbs:

    Begin with bread that has been frozen. Chop into 3cm pieces and put into the mixing bowl.

    Mill at 10 seconds on speed 6. 

    Set aside. 


  2. 2. Then the herbs: 

    Chop the herbs - place parlsey in the bowl with the coriander and chop for 3 seconds on speed 7. 

    Set aside. 


  3. 3. Where it all comes together:

    In the empty mixing bowl - place the peeled onion, garlic and ginger and chop for 3 seconds on 7. 

    Saute by adding olive oil and the curry powder and varoma for 2 minutes. 

  4. Combine all ingredients by adding the lentils and chickpeas to the bowl and mix for 10 seconds on speed 6. Add parsley and half of the breadcrumbs, salt to taste and mix to combine for another 30 seconds on speed 4. 


  5. Next, using your hands, make the mixture into patties and coat in the breadcrumbs. The mixture should be moist enough to pick up the breadcrumbs, and firm enough to hold shape. Place on a tray and put the tray into the fridge for at least an hour to 'set'. 


    4. Cook it up and serve

    When you are ready to cook them. Spray a pan with the olive oil spray (or you can use regular oil) and carefully place the patties in the tray. Cook on both sides, only turning over once. 




Patties can be made and stored in the fridge a day before you want to make them (up to the end of step 3). Fry when you are ready to serve. 

You can adjust the proportion of herbs and use half a bunch of coriander with half a bunch of parsley for example.

Serve with sweet chilli sauce or tomato chutney.

    These are awesome. They've become a family favourite of ours. I add a few more breadcrumbs to keep them together.

  • These patties were delicious!

    These patties were delicious!  I received my TM yesterday and the patties were the first thing I made.  I added a medium sized sweet potato and chopped it with the onion and then sauteed (cooking time approx. 12 mins).

    Next time I make them, I might coat with flour, egg and then breadcrumbs before pan frying with some vegetable oil (instead of just breadcrumbing).
