    I absolutely love love love these. My mother's aunt would make them. They go great with a lovely, saucy curry and some rice.

    Great recipe. I couldn't find fresh cilantro so subbed in nira (scallions?)and used a bit of coriander powder instead and turned out pretty good.

    These didn't stick together too well for me so I added about half a cup of flour to the mixture.
