- 200 grams of red lentils
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 carrot, grated for natural sweetness
- 1 garlic clove, for that extra zing
- Salt and pepper, to elevate the taste
- Breading flour, for that crispy exterior
- Soy sauce, adding depth to the flavors
- Sunflower oil, for frying these golden delights
- Prepare the Lentils: Start by soaking the red lentils in water, allowing them to swell for approximately 3 hours, or conveniently overnight. This step ensures they’re ready for the culinary transformation ahead.
- Sauté the Aromatics: In a pan, heat up some sunflower oil and small-chop the onion. Grate the carrot for a natural touch of sweetness. Add both to the pan and sauté them until they turn a glorious golden brown, releasing their delicious aromas.
- Blend and Season: Take the soaked and swollen lentils, and with the help of a blender, transform them into a creamy mixture. Add a sprinkle of salt and pepper to enhance the flavors. Then, incorporate the sautéed onions and carrots for a delightful medley of textures and tastes. For a savory punch, add approximately 2 spoons of soy sauce and mix everything thoroughly.
- Shape and Fry: Form the lentil mixture into patties, each one bursting with flavor. Roll each patty in breading flour to achieve that irresistible crispy exterior. Heat a frying pan, add sunflower oil, and carefully fry the patties on both sides until they achieve a beautiful golden hue.
- Savor the Moment: Your Red Lentil Patties are now ready to delight your taste buds. Enjoy them as a wholesome meal or as a satisfying snack. Bon Appétit! 😘
