I made it exactly the same as the recipe except that I did not include linseeds because I could not find them here in Malta. Apart from that this is a really tasty and healthy recipe even my husband liked it. I was worried that he will not eat it because of the lemon juice, he hates the taste of the lemon in cooking, but he said that the ginger must have hidden the taste. Great, done it over and over again!!!!
