 Ingredients List

  • 7 oz Short Grain Rice
  • 7 oz Red Lentils
  • 1 Garlic, Clove, Chopped

False fish has no more to do with fish than Mock Goose with goose, but it
is a wondefully inventive dish that resembles fried fish steaks.

Method: Boil the rice until cooked - about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the
lentils, garlic and onion together in as little water as possible. As soon
as the rice and lentils are just cooked, drain them, then stir them
together adding the herbs and salt. Press the mixture into a 2 pint (1.2
litre) pudding basin. Fit a Saucer into the basin on top of the mixture,
weight it down - a couple of tins will do nicely - and leave it overnight.
The following day, remove the mixture and cut into slices. Coat the slices
with egg, then breadcrumbs and fry until golden. Serve with fresh
vegetables and parsley sauce.
