 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      cup           lentils -- rinsed and drained
    3      cups          water
    1      tsp.          curry powder
                         pinch of salt
    1      tsp.          coriander
    1      tsp.          cumin
    1      tsp.          olive oil
      1/4  cup           carrot -- chopped fine
    2      cloves        garlic -- chopped
    1      large         onion -- chopped
    1 1/2  cups          whole grain bread crumbs
    2      T.            wheat flour
    2      T.            tomato paste mixed w/1 T. soy sauce
 
 Rinse lentils and add to water. Bring to boil, reduce heat, add curry
 powder, salt, coriander and cumin. Cover pan and cook for 35 to 45
 minutes until tender. Set aside with lid on. Heat in a skillet and saute
 the olive oil, carrot, garlic and onion. Lentils should absorb the
 remaining liquid; if not, drain. Mash lentils, mix with sauteed
 vegetables and bread crumbs (crumbs can be made by putting broken pieces
 of bread into a blender and blend a few seconds). Mix in flour and tomato
 paste/soy sauce. Form into balls and flatten into patties. Place on oiled
 baking sheet and bake at 350-degrees for 20 minutes. Turn over and bake
 20 minutes more. Makes 12 patties.
