the Ingredients

Curried Red Lentil Burgers
  • 100 g/3½ oz red lentils, picked over, rinsed in a fine-mesh sieve and drained
  • 480 ml/16 fl oz water
  • 1 can (400 g/13 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 175 g/6 oz roasted, salted peanuts
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 tablespoons panko breadcrumbs
  • 8 tablespoons natural Greek yogurt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 large pitta breads
  • 1 baby lettuce, shredded
  • ½ cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 8 tablespoons mango chutney

Special Equipment

  • Griddle
  • Burger Press


    In the kitchen:

  • In a saucepan combine the lentils and water. Bring to the boil. Skim off any foam that rises to the top. Reduce the heat to mediumlow and simmer for 10–20 minutes, until tender. Drain well, rinse briefly, and allow to cool.
  • In a food processor fitted with a metal blade, pulse the lentils, chickpeas, peanuts, curry powder, cumin, salt and pepper to form a thick, slightly chunky paste. Transfer to a bowl and fold in the panko, yogurt, eggs and coriander until combined.
  • Using the burger press, form four gently packed patties, each about 1.5 cm/ ¾ inch thick. The patties will be quite wet. Cover and refrigerate the patties for 2–4 hours.
  • At the barbecue:

  • Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat (200–260°C/400–500°F) and preheat a grill-proof griddle.
  • Coat the griddle lightly with the oil. Place the patties on the griddle and cook over direct medium-high heat for 5–7 minutes, with the lid closed, until firm and nicely marked, carefully turning once. During the last minute of grilling time, warm the pittas on the cooking grates over direct heat, turning once.
  • Cut the pittas and patties in half. Place a patty half inside each pitta half. Divide the lettuce, cucumber and mango chutney among the pittas, tucking the ingredients inside. Serve immediately.
