I admit my heart wasn’t in it. I estimated each ingredient and threw it in the bowl. I had no semolina. Who cares? I’m too lazy to dirty another bowl, so I don’t bother making the dipping sauce. It was just one of those days. So, despite my lethargic, careless attitude, this came out great and I thought it was very good. Read More

My Boyfriend loved these. I niether loved them or hated them. I couldnt decide. The potatos were still too raw for my liking I think. I may make again with some modifications. We both did not care for the yogurt sacue. Maybe a Chipotle Aioli Dipping Sauce instead. Read More

These patties were great! I made them exactly as the recipe says. I changed the sauce only because we accidentally bought vanilla yogurt and decided adding pineapple juice would be much too sweet. BUT we happened to have a jar of pineapple salsa (just pineapple and spice no tomato) in the fridge. That handled the fruity and the spicy while the yogurt contributed creamy and sweet. Awesome all around! Read More

These were a hit at my house. I will definitely make them again. My "batter" seemed a little runny not sure if that's the way it's supposed to be. I did not have any samolina flour so I just doubled the regular flour. I also did not make the yogurt sauce. No plain yogurt and not enough time!! Read More

loved the patties. Didn't like the dipping sauce as much as I liked the patties though. I preferred them plain. Read More

I altered it a little bit using coconut flour instead of semolina and left out the coconut flakes all together. I also used honey instead of maple syrup and added nutmeg and salt. It tasted great. I thought the yogurt sauce was a very nice touch that complemented it fantastically. Read More
