Top Review by Maito

Used far less oil. Also made two batches of the yogurt sauce (therefore doubled), one with and one without the curry. The one without was the clear winner. The yogurt, cucumber and mint all go really well with a veggie burger - giving it a yummy falafel-like taste. You could even go super easy and sub pre-made tzatziki. (Please note: the vinegar and the other half of the garlic are missing from the directions).
