Photos, the dhal recipe (failure) I used, and rationale for this can be found here.

I'm entering it for the May vegetarian competition if I'm allowed to - considering that a large part of the ingredients is someone else's recipe.

Fritter Recipe (will need to be adjusted according to the wetness of your dhal)

Ingredients
1 cup left over dhal
1/2 cup chickpea flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 egg

Method
Mix everything together and drop in tablespoonsful onto a hot oiled griddle. Turn when bubbles rise to the surface.

Pancake recipe

Add sufficient milk to the fritter batter to make a runny pancake batter (about 1/3 cup?). Mix well. Pour 1/2 cup at a time onto a hot oiled griddle or frying pan. Turn when the surface is almost dry. Roll as soon as it's cooked, with filling of your choice.

Muffin recipe

Add sufficient chickpea flour to the fritter batter to make a thick batter that will drop slowly from a spoon. Mix well. Fill silicon muffin or cupcake cases with the batter, then microwave on medium for 1 1/4 minutes per muffin. Or you could bake in a hot oven until cooked.

They look great, Bronwyn, and a good save on a dish that went awry! I must say I have trouble with dhal from time to time. I've always found Rose Elliot's recipe for simple dhal reliable, but if I try others or try to wing it I seem to lose the stodge and it just becomes thin and runny, like yours did. :(

Rose Elliot's one is one here: http://community.cookinglight.com/showthread.php?t=42515 plus a few others.

I think it may be the recipe then. The amounts of lentils look similar, but your recipe has about half the water that mine did.
