Ramadan2017-Iftar: Chickpea & Lentil Patties w/Caramelised onion

Cheese. You’d be crazy not to love it! my son and I love the stuff. Oozey and grilled, grated and sliced. Mozzarella is one of those cheeses that I tend to add to pizza’s and pasta dishes. I wanted to use it this time as a sort of side or nibble. Again, as well as…
