    Quite tasty. Served them in lettuce cups with tauge,mint, koriander, carrot julienne, ramiro pepper (zoete punt paprika) crusty bread on the side. Nice!

    Unfortunately, they came out tough and rubbery

    Very unique flavor. Couldn’t find ground chicken so we used ground turkey instead - worked fine. Would recommend using lemon grass essential oil instead of the pieces of the stalks (it ended up being very splintery with the fibrous texture of the stalks). Also, not sure if the sugar coating makes a big difference in the end, but the overall flavor was great.

    Was sceptical about rolling it in the sugar- but turned out perfect!! Ate them rolled in lettuce. Excellent!

    I substituted lemon grass paste, but these was still so flavorful and easy to make.

    Very good flavors. I did not have ground chicken so I used a combination of ground turkey, ground lamb and ground turkey sausage. It was great. I served cumin rice and garlic asparagus for a complete dinner.

    Yum! I would definitely make again... Added to spicy Thai style soup with a big handful of bean sprouts and spring onions.

    It was amazingly good. Delicious combination of flavors and easy to make. It was a huge hit. Not a morsel left.

    These things are incredible! And super affordable for those on lower budgets. Highly recommend them mixed into any white rice combo. Thinking about trying them with an egg stir fry next time around.
