Used different ingredients. I added a tablespoon of tomato paste and morroccan spice, also some sesame seeds and a grated carrot just for a different flavour. - 20 Apr 2009


Something else. I used this recipe as a base. I added a tablespoon tomato puree, 2 garlic cloves, 6 drops extremely hot kiwifruit chili sauce (kaitati fire?) parsley and about teaspoon basil. It was also necessary to use more breadcrumbs. - 30 Jun 2010
