I got this recipe from a cookbook “Wonderful Ways to Cook Curries” I paid 50c for the book in a thrift shop and don’t plan to keep the poor old thing. I haven’t made this recipe, but we eat a lot of curries and I know I will. Remember an Australian tablespoon is 4 teaspoons.

Thanks for an easy and flavourful recipe. I used leftover mashed Yukon Gold potatoes. Didn't have any nuts in the house so omitted them but enjoyed the patty very much. I'm sure to make this quite often.

A very easy flavorful recipe here !! I did omit the red pepper flakes, and I used lemon juice, cause I had that on hand. All enjoyed here, and I'll have to repeat someday.. Made for AUZ/NZ swap #30

These were very tasty! I really liked the way the flavors of the cumin & mustard seed (I used brown) developed during the saute. I made them a bit ahead of time up to the mix everything together point, then when dinner was almost ready, formed, dredged, & fried. They were a huge hit, and there is enough leftover for me to make more tonight!
