    1. Combine rice and lentils in a medium bowl, rinse and drain. Cover by 2-3 inches of water and allow to soak overnight. Drain well and scoop into food processor. Add garlic, ginger, salt and pepper and puree until a coarse paste. Add peas and pulse 2-3 times to break apart slightly. Scoop mixture into a medium bowl and stir in chopped herbs, scallions and spinach.
    2. Heat a medium non stick skillet over medium heat. Add 2 tbsp olive oil. Form 1/3 cup of batter into an approximate 3″ pattie that is 1/4-1/2″ thick. Sauté for 4-5 minutes per side until golden and cooked through. Repeat with remaining oil and batter. Serve immediately with Cucumber Raita.
