Sweet Potato and Lentil Patties
  1. Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Line and oven tray with baking paper. Place sweet potato on tray and drizzle with half of the oil. Bake for 15-20 minutes until tender. Mash in a bowl and set aside
  2. Cook lentils in a pan of boiling water for 15-20 minutes until softened. Drain well. Transfer to a large bowl to cool
  3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan on medium. Cook onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes until softened. Add spices and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Add spinach, stirring until just wilted. Transfer to bowl with lentils and sweet potato. Mix well and season to taste. Chill until cold. Form into patties and toss in flour to coat. Place on a baking paper-lined tray
  4. Heat oil in frying pan on medium-high. Cook patties for 2-3 minutes each side until golden. Drain on paper towel. Serve patties with yoghurt and lemon wedges

Such a really great recipe. The whole family adored these. I served with a cucumber and mint raita &lemon wedges. Acompanied with an avocado, tomato and basil salsa. I also tried it with normal potatoes (at my hubby'srequest) and that was successful too. This is a fave recipe !!!!!
