Miss Polly’s Curried High Protein Dhal Rice Cakes

Recipe for Polly’s- Curried Dhal SuperFood Rice Patties

Ingredients for the

Dhal Rice Base Mixture

  • 1 cup Indian Dhal SuperFood assorted Lentils-got on Amazon
  • 1 cup Mahatma long grain rice
  • Water to cover

Cook in your slow cooker about 4 hours until cooked through out.

  • You can also add some minced onion, garlic or roasted garlic, parsley,
  • 2 teaspoons organic curry powder for your favorite blend, and about
  • 1/4 cup organic thick-shredded coconut- I use Anthony’s brand I found on Amazon but any good unsweetened organic coconut would work

How to turn that mixture into Curried Dhal-Rice Patties.

  • Take 2 cups of the above Dahl rice mixture
  • 2 or more roasted garlic cloves that have been minced very finally
  • 2 vegan eggs or 2 regular eggs or 1/2 cup egg substitute- whatever your diet preferences are you pick!
  • Coat the formed Patties with panko bread crumbs, and put on a large plate to reserve to fry very briefly. If you’re doing a vegan or gluten-free diet, I’m sure you can find gluten free bread and then just make crumbs out of it. I would advise drying out your bread crumbs so it forms a nice crust.

Here’s the How To:

  1. Mix all of the seasoned Patty base mixture with the eggs in garlic and form into about half cup size patties. I used a stainless steel ice cream scoop that has about 1/2 cup capacity. This makes it really easy you do it really fast, and you just format with your right hand, smash it down with your left and they will form perfectly and cook evenly.
  2. Heat some oil in a non-stick large deep pan or in a thermostat controlled fryer. I used soybean oil for the first time in my life, and it fried very well without smoking at high temperatures.
  3. Gently lower each patty into the hot oil and fry on each side. Once fried, move over to a paper towel lined plate.

This recipe will make about 9 large palm sized patties.

Found out after I made the initial recipe that peach mango salsa goes exceptionally well with this. You could also use roasted garlic salsa, Trader Joe’s makes a really good one. I mixed up a little bit of tomato paste with some organic Annie’s Worcestershire sauce in it. I believe I used about two tablespoons of tomato paste and just a dash or two of the Worcestershire sauce to give it a little tang.

I served at with garlic Parmesan risotto that I had made before and stored in a mason jar.

Enjoy! These have a lot of protein in them and even though fried, they are still a very good food for you. If you’re using good quality oil and you drain the things you fry carefully, and you don’t fry that often you can have things like this.

I put some in an airtight container in my fridge and I froze the rest of them for future meals.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.
