    All Things Kenyan (mod) said: Try doubling the millet seed and maybe leaving out the oil. The peanut butter should hold things together.

    A lot of African recipes really don’t have precise measurements and need some tweaking.

    cook said: I tried this recipe but the patties were way too goopy and never stayed together. When I pan-fried them they stuck to the pan and were basically impossible to keep in any kind of shape.
