Yellow split lentils are also known as mung beans. They are relatively easy to cook and digest. There are different types of mung beans or yellow lentils available in the market. For this recipe, make sure you get "yellow split lentils". I usually don't find these in my local supermarket so I buy these from South Asian groceries.

Yellow Split Lentil (Mung Beans) Pankcake

In the recipe below, I am making yellow split lentil pancakes with mince. You can also make it vegetarian by simply removing the mince from the recipe and following the same preparation methods.

  • 1 cup yellow split lentils, soaked in water overnight
  • Oil for greasing the pan
  • 100g mince (I used beef)
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Drain water from the soaked lentils.

  • Mix mince, garlic, salt and pepper with the lentil paste to make a batter.

  • Heat non-stick pan in a medium high. Grease lightly with oil.
  • Put 2 tablespoon of mixed batter on the pan and spread it out with the help of a spoon or your fingers. Do not make it too thin. The thickness should be no more than 1/2 inch otherwise it will be hard to cook thoroughly or hard to turn over.

  • Cook until one side is brown. Then turn over and cook the other side.

    This is so yummy, I've made this before, but vegetarian style. Love the mince meat in it, as well. So comforting and satisfying!

    I love lentils, but have never had them in a pancake. These look and sound delicious!

    These really look like they have some texture. I've never made "burgers" using split peas but there is always a first time. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary
