TIME
Prep time 10 mins plus soak 1 hour.
Cooking Time 15 mins

Rinse the lentils until the water runs clear. Place in a bowl, cover with cold water and leave to soak for 1 to 2 hours. The lentils will soak up the water, swell and soften.
Drain the lentils and add to a food processor, along with the ginger and onion blend all the ingredients to form a batter like consistency.
To the batter add salt, pepper, garam masala, the chillis and cumin seeds and mix really well.
Let the batter sit for 5 mins to thicken.
Heat a non-stick frying pan to a medium heat; ladle the batter into the pan and with the back of a tablespoon swirl the batter into a circle.
Cook for 4-5 minutes, using a fish slice gently check to see if the edges are cooked, before flipping make sure the pancake is free from the pan, if turned over too early the pancake tends to turns to mush. Flip and cook the other side for a couple of minutes press down and flip over to check if it is cooked.
Place on plate and continue to cook the rest of the pancakes.
