My Notes:

Salt and spiciness can be adjusted as per taste.

The variation of these patties is using mashed potato or raw banana for outer covering.

Rusk powder or bread crumbs can be used for coating.

Refrigeration makes the patties hold the shape during baking.

Grilling the patties is optional, I prefer this way to give a nice crust and colour to patties.
