False Fish

False Fish


  • 7 ounces short grain rice
  • 7 ounces red lentils
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 onion, Chopped
  • 3 T herbs of your choice
  • salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 ounces fresh breadcrumbs
  • oil for Frying


Yield: 4 servings. Boil the rice until cooked - about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the lentils, garlic and onion together in as little water as possible. As soon as the rice and lentils are just cooked, drain them, then stir them together adding the herbs and salt. Press the mixture into a 2 pint (1.2 litre) pudding basin. Fit a Saucer into the basin on top of the mixture, weight it down - a couple of tins will do nicely - and leave it overnight. The following day, remove the mixture and cut into slices. Coat the slices with egg, then breadcrumbs and fry until golden. Serve with fresh vegetables and parsley sauce.
