2 cup dry kidney beans
1 tsp curry
4 tbsp cornstarch
4 tbsp cornmeal

1 garlic to taste, i used four

2 carrots, grated (acts as
2 tbsp beef bullion and or
1 1*tablespoon soy sauce
2 eggs (to act as a binder)
make up the beans, (slow overnight or faster boil & wait) then mash.
Add the spices, I added the vege beef bullion as I don't worry too
much about the salt. Form into patties ( make sure they are thin) and
fry in a non-stick pan. I found that mine took quite a while to cook
(too thick) but they turned out very good! Passed the taste test, my
8 year old just loved them.
