So I have made this a few times and like the flavor but have a problem with them falling apart. A friend suggested adding an egg to hold them together. Any one else having this problem?
These were very hearty! The cumin and chili powder really enhances the flavor. I did use barley (out of rice) and mixed all ingred. in my food processor, since barley does not hold together as well as rice. Thanks for posting- Roxygirl
