I found the mixture was very sticky so I made burgers instead of smaller patties. I also served with a hot noodle stirfry done with loads of ginger lemon grass and garlic. My brother served his with chips tho and said it was delicious ;-)

A delicious meal! I used ready-minced turkey and added ginger and dried chilli flakes to the pattie mix as I'm a spice lover. I griddled the patties which worked really well - lovely flavour on the outside but nice and moist inside. I've got a couple left in the freezer that were left over and I'm looking forward to eating them!

Do you think you could freeze these patties?

I like to replace Chilli sauce with Mango Chutney. I bake the patties in the oven instead of frying and maybe add some vegetables (e.g. half a carrot or 1/4 zucchini) to add more moisture.

I have made this recipe several times now and its a firm favourite for a simple midweek supper. I do play around with the seasoning ingredients depending on whether we fancy extra spice or more garlic etc. Every time its been a winner. Give it a go :-)

I had some turkey mince I had to use, so decided this was exactly what I wanted to use it for, something quite light and asian flavours. It was a delicious dish, but found that the patties were quite dry. I later remembered that Turkey meat being so lean, does tend to be quite dry. Next time I might save my turkey mince for smaller turkey balls in asian soups which I've done before where you dont notice the dryness so much. I did enjoy this none the less and do recommend giving it a try, however as previous comments said, do accompany it with dipping sauce to counteract the dryness of the patties.

I love thai flavours and this recipe did not disappoint. Lovely and fresh, healthy too. You definitely need the sweet chilli sauce with it, to avoid the overall meal being to dry. Am hoping to make this again next week!

Very easy to do and healthy - added a few extras to the stir fry for some zing. Perfect for a quick after work tea.

The grilling didn't quite work for me, so finished the patties off in a fry-ing pan. Taste-wise it was very nice though.

Patties great, noodles not so great because of the stir-fry vegetables that had no taste.

The turkey patties were lovely, and held together well under the grill. I used minced turkey rather than doing it myself.
The noodle/stir-fry combo could have done with some extra flavour though - maybe some garlic-ginger paste?
Whole family ate this- always something of a triumph.

Whilst the mixture was in the food processor I also added a dash of soy sauce and red curry sauce for extra flavour and much needed moisture.
