By Chris Delfosse


1 cup red lentil (washed and soaked for 20-25 minutes)

1 inch of ginger (roughly chopped)

4 cloves of garlic (roughly chopped)

1 cup flat leaf parsley (or cilantro leaves)

1/2 cup almond flour/meal (or whole cashew nuts)

Salt to taste

1 to 1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or Indian red chili powder, or 2 green chilies, or chili flakes)

1 teaspoon cumin powder

1 teaspoon black pepper powder

1 lime or lemon juiced

1/4 teaspoon baking soda


1 teaspoon cooking oil

1 medium yellow onion (grated - about 1 cup)

1 medium potato (grated - about 1 cup)

1 medium carrot (grated - about 1 cup)

1 cup of cabbage (grated/finely chopped)

Salt to taste

1/2 cup cooking oil for frying


Red lentils - Wash until water becomes clear

In a bowl, put in lentils and water to soak for 20 - 25 minutes (put in enough water to cover over the lentils)

After lentils have soaked, strain off water and set it aside

To a heated pan, add 1 teaspoon of cooking oil

Add in the vegetables and 1 teaspoon of salt

Stir and cook for 4-5 minutes on medium-high heat (this is to get the moisture out of the vegetables)

Set aside to cool

Into a food processor, pour in the red lentils

Add in 1 inch of ginger

4 cloves of garlic

1 cup of flat leaf parsley

1/2 cup of almond flour

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon garam masala

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or Indian chili powder)

1teaspoon of cumin powder

1 teaspoon of black pepper powder

Juice of 1 lime or lemon

Process the items

Once blended, set aside

To begin to make the kebabs, in a mixing bowl pour in the red lentils mixture

Add in the vegetables and mix together

Add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda

Mix well

Add a few drops of oil on my hands and spread all on my palms (done so the mixture doesn’t stick)

Start to roll the mixture into kabob shapes and set on a plate

Start to fry the kababs

In a medium to high heated pan, add 1/2 cup of oil

Add in the kababs

Cook until brown on one side then flip over until cooked completely

Remove from pan

Ready for serve
