1. Wash the lentils and cook them in water until lentils are soft.

2. Near the end of the cooking time add the bulghur wheat. Let the
bulgur soften for a while.

3. Meanwhile sauté the chopped onions and garlic in olive oil.

4. Add the tomato paste, ajvar and spices.

5. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and let the mixture
cool for a while, so that you don’t burn your fingers while shaping
them. If you add a grated potatoe the mixture keeps together.

6. Shape them into patties and serve on a plate. Serve with pickles
