    JustJanS's Note:

    Tomoko's mum Toshiko sent me 3 new cookbooks. They are written in Japanese, so Tomoko and I are going to slowly translate the recipes we want to make-here is the first one! Prep time doesn't include cooling the leeks.

      These patties have a very delicate flavour and the sauce the same. I must admit I like a bit more oomph and would proably use some fresh coriander next time. I served these for brunch with a daikon radish & carrot salad. It was only enough for 2 served this way.

      This was a great way to use leek I HAD to use. I doubled the quantity, but I cooked a bit longer to reduce the volume.
      The mild sauce went very well with them. I prepared these in advance for tomorrow. They are easy to carry and would be perfect for picnics as well. Thanks a lot Jan!

      Made this without the sauce and doubled the leeks for extra flavour -- was super delicious and reminded me of Chinese spring onion omelettes. After reading the reviews I got round the fiddliness problem by frying the patties in kawaii heart-shaped pancake/omelette tin moulds... if you don't make them too thick they should set easily, otherwise just flip them superfast once the bottom half has set. (Without the mould the mixture is very liquid and will not form into patties, even with twice the amount of leek.) Serving size is a bit too small, I ended up with four small patties only.
