For the Breadcrumbs
Pre heat the oven to 180°C.
Tear the bread into small pieces, ½” - 1”. Place on a baking sheet and cook in the centre of the oven until they are dry and light brown. Rub the bread through a metal sieve, or process in a blender, to make breadcrumbs. Mix together with the Parmesan.
For the Patties
N.B) If the pattie mix is made the day before you want it, it is firmer and easier to shape.
Cover the peas with boiling water and allow to stand for 5 minutes. Drain, cover with cold water, cool and drain again.
Mash the beans and peas with a potato masher, add the Spicy Malaysian Relish, crushed cream crackers, lime juice, salt and pepper.
Divide the mixture into four and on a floured board, shape the patties into circles approximately 1.5cm high, 4-5 cm’s across.
For the Dressing
To the sour cream add honey, coriander, sea salt and lime juice and gently mix together.
For the Salad
Put the rocket, tarragon and sliced apple into a bowl. Add lemon juice, salt and pepper, stir gently.
To cook the Patties
Dip the patties in the egg and coat on all sides in the breadcrumb/parmesan mix.
Fill a medium sized frying pan with vegetable oil to at least 2cm deep and place on a medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the patties to the pan and cook for approximately two minutes, checking occasionally that they are not burning. Turn and cook for the same time until golden brown.
Remove from the pan and drain on kitchen paper to absorb any excess oil.
Serve the patties with the sour cream dressing and the apple salad on the side.
