Made these lentil burgers last week, and they were very tasty. All the spices made the patties packed with flavors, I had it with a hamburger bun and some papaya chutney (see link at the bottom of the page), absolutely delicious. Not only vegetarians love it, these burgers can win pretty much everyone.
