This recipe is similar to this one with a few differences when it comes to flavour.
I used whole masoor dal, which we call “kamande” in my mother tongue as it’s an easily available, affordable and tasty source of protein that holds its shape well and blends well with whichever spices you choose to cook it with. In this case I used a store bought mixed spices blend.
As the tomatoes cook, add two tablespoons of good quality peanut butter in a cup of cold water. Mix well till the peanut butter is completely dissolved.
Tip: When seasoning keep in mind how salty or sweet the peanut butter you are using is, as you do not want your dish to be too salty.
If you are looking for a decadent, tasty, finger licking vegetarian recipe, this is it. The kids and anyone else you make this for will love it.
The “meatless meatballs” hold their shape really well and the grated potato and breadcrumbs help maintain their crispiness. The lentils are full of flavour and have a meaty texture that will please the palate.
Vegetables are not boring and this is one way to jazz them up when feeling indulgent. Go on and give this recipe a try.
