Bake the fries
Bake the fries

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Slice the potatoes (unpeeled) into 1cm fries. Place the potato on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then bake for 25-30 minutes or until tender. TIP: Cut the potato to the correct size so they cook in the allocated time.

While the fries are baking, finely chop the coriander. Thinly slice the tomato. Thinly slice 1/2 the cucumber and finely chop the remaining cucumber.

Make the patties
Make the patties

Drain and rinse the lentils and transfer 1/2 to a medium bowl. Using a potato masher or fork, mash the lentils until as smooth as possible. Add the egg, fine breadcrumbs, plain flour, coriander, tandoori paste, the salt, a squeeze of lemon juice and the remaining lentils. Mix until well combined. Using damp hands, shape the mixture into 2cm thick patties (2 per person). Place the patties in the fridge until you are ready to cook them. TIP: Refrigerating the patties helps them hold their shape

Cook the patties

When the fries have 10 minutes of cook time remaining, heat a good drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the lentil patties and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until browned and cooked through. TIP: Don't flip the patties before they are done, this will help them stay together.

Make the raita
