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.

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.

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!

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!!

I used GF flours, added a banana, ground flax seed in water instead of butter to create a GF/Vegan version and it was appreciated by all.

These were a great addition to Christmas dinner! I didn't add the coconut and we didn't miss it. I oven baked the potatoes prior to grating them to avoid the uncooked flavor/texture that another review mentioned. We will be making these again soon.
