These were sooooo good!!! I only left out the mint, cuz I didn't have any. Love the flavors of this.
We enjoyed this for dinner tonight. I didn't have mint and didn't want to try and sub something for it. Next time I will up the marjoram and cumin. These were nice and juicy and I'm already planning on serving these to company. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
Served with Moroccan Chickpeas and Sweet Potatoes, couscous and greek yogurt flavoured with mint and cummin this made for a wonderful meal. The only adjustments I made to the recipe was to double the dried spices and use roasted and crush cumin seed instead of powder. Endevour to cut your onin into very small dice or fgrate it so the patties keep together well. Thanks for sharing
