Combine the water, carrots, lentil, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and then cover and simmer until the lentils are tender and broken down, 12 to 14 minutes. Drain in a colander, pressing out the excess liquid. Transfer to a bowl and cool to room temperature, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, toast the cashews in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat or in the toaster over until golden and fragrant. Let cool completely.
Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 7 minutes. Add the garlic and curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and let cool.
Place the cooled cashews in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. Add the lentils and the onion mixture; pulse until the mixture is cohesive but still somewhat textured. Transfer to a bowl and add enough bread crumbs to create a consistency that enables you to form cohesive patties. Season with salt and pepper to taste. With moist hands, form the mixture into six 1/2-inch-thick patties.
Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to a large saute pan over medium heat and cook the patties until evenly browned and heated through, about 4 minutes per side.
Serve in warmed pitas along with lettuce, tomatoes, and mayonnaise.
