    7       oz           Short Grain Rice
    7       oz           Red Lentils
    1                    Garlic, Clove, Chopped
    1                    Onion, Chopped
    3       tb           Herbs of your choice
                         Salt
    1                    Egg, Beaten
    4       oz           Fresh Breadcrumbs
                         Oil for Frying
 
   False fish has no more to do with fish than Mock Goose
   with goose, but it is a wondefully inventive dish that
   resembles fried fish steaks.
   
   Method: Boil the rice until cooked - about 20 minutes.
   Meanwhile, cook the lentils, garlic and onion together
   in as little water as possible. As soon as the rice
   and lentils are just cooked, drain them, then stir
   them together adding the herbs and salt. Press the
   mixture into a 2 pint (1.2 litre) pudding basin. Fit a
   Saucer into the basin on top of the mixture, weight it
   down - a couple of tins will do nicely - and leave it
   overnight. The following day, remove the mixture and
   cut into slices. Coat the slices with egg, then
   breadcrumbs and fry until golden. Serve with fresh
   vegetables and parsley sauce.
