    **Jubes**'s Note:

    An old family favourite. You can add cilantro instead of the parsley if you wish or add more curry powder or use a curry paste instead. Add some finely diced chilli or ground chilli flakes if you wish. For a gluten-free version be sure that all ingredients used are gluten-free. Cooking time does not include the 30 minutes refrigeration time required

      Very good patties! I love sweet potato flavor and their mushy texture. I didn't use curry or chilli to suit our taste and add some scallions. Served with small salad and mango chutney. Texture was perfect they hold together nicely! Thank you Jubes.

      Beautiful! The kumera gave this a distinctive taste over regular potatoes and the all the rest of the ingredients worked really well together. Only change I made to suit what I had was use a teaspoon odd of chili sauce rather than a fresh chili. The texture was perfect and nice and light while being easy to cook without breaking apart.

      This is one really great recipe.
      DH and I loved these. I only made a couple of changes, I used both kumera and normal potato (only because I had a little mashed potato left over) and I baked mine in the oven.
      We love the hint of curry with the Kumera and this made for a delightful dinner, with salad. Although don't think us strange .......BUT.........I just loved tuna patties with tomato sauce and DH enjoy's his with a touch of vinegar!
      Jubes we did really love these and will be making these again.
      Top recipe! Thanks Jubes.
