    These are very good. I will definitely be making them again. I found after frying a few that I didn't need much oil though and I thought about omitting the sugar myself but after reading several of the reviews, I decided to leave it in and am glad I did. This is a definite winner. Thanks, Stinkerbell.

    Just excellent. I made 4 very large patties, used two and froze the others. I think I'll use the others as a patty in a bun and treat it much like a burger. After the tears stopped, these were a snap to prepare!! Thanks for the post Stinkerbell

    Yummyo! What a fabulous recipe. Definitely listen to Mischka and DO NOT obmit the sugar. It is the making of this dish. Watch your oil as I feel 'hot' is too hot and you may need to turn it down a tad otherwise the sugar will make these burn. Loved it and a definite 'zaar favourite' for our family - thank you!

    Loved these. Didn't change the recipe at all. The result were light and fluffy with a crisp outer. I was going to omit, or reduce, the sugar but so glad I didn't.

    I made this recipe to get rid of some excess onions and used what was around the house. I used baking soda instead of paking powder, cornflour instead of cornmeal and olive oil instead of peanut oil; I omitted the sugar as I assumed that was to cater to the american palette. The basic ingredients are onions, flour and milk anyway. The resulting product (a word of advice, the heat level needs to be quite low) didn't taste too good, was heavy and not easy to digest. I think I'll throw away the onions next time.


I'm a Secretary that has lived all my life in the same old town. I know everyone and everyone knows me, and that's just the way I like it. I love to cook (of course), waterski, snowski, snowmobile, hike, cave, rock climb etc. I guess I am pretty active. I also love to travel. I'm single, never married, no kids. I grew up in a really large family, there were 10 of us kids and so I have tons of nieces and nephews to spoil. I think my favorite cookbook is now Zaar!
