Rinse some masoor dal and add to a pan with one cup of water, bouillon and a bay leaf. Bring the water to boil, lower the flame, and simmer for 10-12 minutes. The dal needs to be soft but not completely done. Once done, remove from flame. Then add this to a blender, and add the cooked daal, mushrooms, oats, and spices. Blend it until the mixture is semi-coarse.
In a pan, saute the onions and garlic, add the pulsed mushroom-dal-oats mixture, and cook for a few minutes. Add some soy sauce and salt and pepper. Mix to form a consistent mixture. Add whisked egg into the mix to help binding while baking. This is optional, so it can be skipped too. Make high-protein tikkis out of the mix and bake them till crisp on the outside.
