The water will be been absorbed and the resultant 'porridge' will be yellowish and crumbly. (Alternatively, it can be cooked in a pot until the desired texture is reached).

Blend remaining ingredients (except the breadcrumbs) in blender until smooth and stir into lentil/nut mixture and mix well.
Shape into patties, roll in breadcrumbs and fry in oil until brown and crispy.
