Maybe it’s the perennial summer we have here in Malaysia or the anticipation of holiday eating, but more and more everyday I find myself wanting lighter and healthier meals.  For many though, ‘lighter and healthier’ is synonymous for ‘bland and a buzzkill to eat’.

Not necessarily.

This dish is fast becoming one of my favorite recipes to make for lunch and dinner.  Lentil cakes that are crispy on the outside, soft and savoury on the inside and are delicious wrapped up in a tortilla or fluffy naan bread.  Paired them with fresh cucumber and tomato, a drizzle of lemon and garlic yogurt sauce and a dab of chili and you have yourself one tasty little wrap.

If that is still not your thing, you can always serve it up as a side dish paired with a nice roast chicken or a bit of lamb.  It might make you reconsider the previously neglected ‘light and healthy’.
