Heat a pan over medium flame and add 1.5 tbsp mustard oil. Sautee the onions until golden brown. Add salt, pepper, red chili powder, turmeric, cumin powder and garam masala as soon as the onions are golden brown. Sauté the mixture for a little longer, then remove from heat and place in a bowl.
In a fresh bowl, mash the green lentils, mashed potatoes and onions together. Form into two patties.
