Spelt patties with orange-radicchio and chutney-yoghurt dip.

- 100g coarsed unripe spelt grains ( a very hearty and smokey tasting variation of spelt, called Grünkern)
- 1 carrot (cut into small cubes)
- 1 small radicchio
- 1 orange
- 1 onion
- garlic
- 100g soy yoghurt
- 2 tbslp mango chutney
- olive oil and safflower oil
- pinch of sugar

Fry the carrot in olive oil and add finely cut onion and smashed garlic. 

Then add the coarsed unripe spelt grains and stir. Season with salt, pepper, vegetable broth. Add enough water to cover the mixture and cook for 15 minutes on medium heat while strirring from time to time. Let this mixture cool. If it's too wet add some bread crumbs or if it's too dry add bit by bit some cold water til you can form patties. 
Cut radicchio into very fine stripes. Peel orange, remove the white inner skin and cut into stripes or big chunks.
Heat some safflower oil and fry the patties on medium heat for about 3 minutes on each side. In the same time heat 1 teaspoon olive oil in a heavy pot and fry the radicchio stripes on high heat, add salt and pepper and the orange slices. When the radicchio turn slightly brown turn down the heat, add the sugar, stir well and put a lid onto the pot.

Continue frying patties. Mix yoghurt with mango chutney. Serve hot patties with lukewarm radicchio and the chutney-yoghurt-dip. It's colourful and combines so many different flavours (bitter, smokey, hearty, tangy) - it's awesome.
