Amaranth and Red Lentil Patties

Amaranth is significantly more nutritious compared to wheat and rice. It is rich in proteins, iron, calcium, manganese, fiber and other nutrients. It is common to use this grain during fasting for vegetarians in India because higher protein foods make one feel fuller for longer. Here is a recipe you could use to include this high protein grain in your diet as everybody's favorite, i.e. just cutlet snacks or burgers patties.

You can serve these patties as cutlets or in burgers for vegetarian patties. In the picture below, I used these patties in a waffle burger along with onions, cabbage, cucumber, and radish. Serve with ketchup or cilantro mint chutney.
