                         -----RISSOLES-----
    8       oz           Green lentils
    1       pt           Hot water
    2       oz           Margarine
    1       ea           Onion, finely chopped
    1       ea           Carrot, finely chopped
    1       ea           Green bell pepper, diced
    2       ea           Garlic cloves, crushed
      1/4   ts           Cayenne
      1/2   ts           Coriander
      1/2   ts           Cumin
      1/2   ts           Curry powder
    2       ts           Tomato paste
                         Salt & pepper, to taste
    1       tb           Parsley, chopped
                         -----COATING-----
                         Vegetable oil
    2       oz           Wholewheat flour
    2       oz           Breadcrumbs
    2       oz           Oats
                         -----YOGURT SAUCE-----
      1/2   pt           Plain soy yogurt
    2       tb           Parsley, chopped
    1       tb           Chives
    1       ea           Garlic clove, crushed
      1/4   ts           Cumin
                         Lemon juice, to taste
                         Salt & pepper
 
   RISSOLES: Combine lentils & water, bring to a boil, reduce heat &
   simmer for 30 minutes, or until the lentils are tender (I think it
   needs closer to an hour to get them really tender).  Add more water
   if necessary.
   Heat the margarine, add the onion & cook for a couple of minutes.
   Add the carrot & pepper & cook until tender, about 10 minutes.  Add
   the spices, tomato paste & salt & pepper.  Mix together well & stir
   in the lentils. Add the parsley.  Allow to cool till it is cool
   enough to handle.
   Divide the mixture into 12 portions & shape into patties.  Coat them
   in flour, dip in some oil & coat in the breadcrumbs & oats (I omitted
   this step).  Shallow fry in hot oil until the patties are golden
   brown on both sides.  Drain well & serve with the sauce.
   SAUCE: Combine all ingredients together & chill.
   MARK'S NOTE: The vegetables do need to be finely diced, it may well be
   easier to use a food processor.  Also, if using the oats, I'd
   recommend running them through the processor too so that they
   resemble oat flour.
