    2 cups cooked lentils, well drained and not too soft
    3 tablespoons chopped onion
    2 cups mashed potatoes (seasoned)
    2 tablespoons vegetable butter
    Scant 1/2 teaspoon sage or sweet marjoram

    Put onion, savory and vegetable butter into a small pan, and let simmer for a few minutes over the fire, to soften the onion, but do not brown. Add the cooked and drained lentils, shake together, and mix with the mashed potato. Form into small, round patty cakes, and brown lightly in a quick oven or in an oiled skillet.

    2 cups bean puree
    1-1/2 tablespoons vegetable butter
    1 tablespoon chopped onion
    3 tablespoons flour
    1 egg
    Scant 1/3 cup hot milk
    A sprinkle of sage
    Salt to taste

    Cook the beans the same as in the preceding , and mash through a colander, having the pulp as dry as possible. In case it is too soft, it may be put into the oven for a few minutes. Make a paste as follows, for holding the food together: Put the butter, the onion, and the savory into a small saucepan, and let simmer for a few moments, but do not brown. Add the flour and mix; then the milk, and stir smooth. Add the egg, slightly broken up, and stir over the fire until smooth and a very thick paste. Salt to taste, and add the bean puree. Mix well, and let cool; then roll out into small, round cakes about 3/4 inch thick, mark on the top with a knife, lay in an oiled baking pan, brush over with cream or milk and brown lightly in a hot oven.

    1 teaspoon salt
    1 and a half teaspoons yellow asafoetida powder (if you are not krishna you can add garlic at this point)
    half a cup chopped fresh parsley
    1 teaspoon sweet paprika (NOT the hot one)!)

    Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and knead well.
    Break the mixture into sixteen balls and press them out flat into 8 cm patties
    Bake the patties in a 200 degree centigrade/390 degree faranheit oven until they dry out somewhat and slightly darken.
    Can be frozen, then when needed fry them in butter or oil until heated through.

    Serve in a bun with fresh sald and most importantly if you are aussie ...fresh tomato slices, beetroot (pickled from the can), fried onions and tomato sauce!!!

    YUMMMMM!!!!
