  1. Step 1

    Cook the potato in a saucepan of boiling water until tender. Drain well. Return to pan. Use a potato masher or fork to mash until almost smooth.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, heat 1 tbs of the oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 mins or until onion softens and colours slightly. Add the curry powder and cook for 30 secs. Add the lentils and toss to combine. Remove from heat.
  3. Step 3

    Heat a large frying pan over high heat. Add half the zucchini and cook for 1 min each side or until tender. Repeat with remaining zucchini. Set aside to cool.
  4. Step 4

    Add lentil mixture to mash and combine. Divide mixture into 8 portions. Shape each portion into a patty, pressing firmly to shape. Heat 1 tbs of remaining oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Cook patties, in batches, for 2-3 mins each side or until golden brown and heated through.
  5. Step 5

    Combine yoghurt and cumin in a bowl. Combine the zucchini, salad leaves and remaining oil in a bowl. Serve patties and salad drizzled with yoghurt mixture.
