Looks awesome! Care to share how you made that?

@Sophie Sure. Finely chopped onion, grated carrot and courgette all fried in olive oil -- take off heat and let cool. Put in a bowl with pre-soaked, drained lentils; splash of soy sauce and breadcrumbs. (Optional for vegans: add beaten egg). Add a little water and finely-chopped fresh herbs. Let sit for an hour.

Form into patties coating with gram flour. Fry in sunflower oil.

I don't really do quantities -- I cook largely by eye and feel.

And it's a variable recipe -- you can substitute what veg you use, or pulses for crushed nuts and/or seeds. The important thing  is to make all the ingredients small. The patties are less likely to break apart when frying.

Sounds very very yumm, even though we just had lunch smiling face with open mouth and tightly-closed eyes  .

So no need to pre-cook the lentils? Just soaking them is enough?

Depends how much crunch you want. These were part cooked.

did the patties stick together well?  I just tried some veggie-burgers a few days ago but they tended to crumble easily.  My recipe was similar to yours but I did not grate carrots or courgettes

Egg and gram flour are good for that. I also leave the mixture to sit after mixing for a couple of hours if I can -- that seems to help.
