So simple and really quick, both me and my husband absolutely loved this recipe, will make again for sure!

Very easy to make, holds together well and fries up nicely. I only used a spray of oil so they were extremely healthy. I only had madras paste so I can't say if the actual recipe is better, but they were full of flavour. I can't wait to get some Thai paste in!

Not the hugest fan of these..I found it quite difficult to make them hold together into a burger so had to add quite a lot of breadcrumbs which I feel spoilt the "healthy factor". Nice flavour that grew on me though.

Everybody in the family loved these, even my 3 children who don't normally eat thai.

Delicious - very tasty and a nice change. My husband loved it! Only thing is I couldnt get them to keep their round shape. As soon as I tried to flip them over, they just fell apart. Still tasted fabulous though. I used green thai paste as I dont like very spicy food, still had a nice kick to it though; very tasty and will try them again.

Excellent healthy alternative to fish cakes and really easy to make. They have just become a favourite in our house!

Bland and dry - the flavours were alright, but both me and my boyfriend agreed that we'd never eat this one again. Simple, though.

Totally delicious and extremely easy to make. Highly recommended. All the family loved this dish even my 9 year old twins.
