Altered ingredient amounts.The consistency, texture and flavour come through on this one. It's great. Although, I like the lime sauce a little less strong so I add less lime juice.-15 Sep 2008
Made it healthier.I added a little fresh chopped garlic and extra coriander to the cakes, otherwise I thought they were a little bland. I also substituted low-fat soured cream for the mayonnaise and that worked very well!-15 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients.Oh these are good! I thought there were too many noodles so set some aside but them used them up as I went along so they were perfect...wasn't the prettiest looking (didn't even try to prevent noodles from sticking out) but it tastes great! Also added some garlic. YUM!-15 Sep 2008
