“These crispy savory cakes are a unique and tasty way to enjoy daikon radish. Like an Asian twist on a modified latke recipe. If you like spiciness and the bitter taste of radish, you'll love this recipe. If not, give it a try anyway, dipped in ketchup, sour cream, miso mayo, jam, or whatever floats your boat.” - by Brett

"I live in Japan and subscribe to a grocery service that invariably sends me a daikon each week. These are not US daikon, my daikon are HUGE. My biggest shocker was the 5 kilo daikon. It was like a cri..." See morecket bat! Needless to say, I struggle to use up all that daikon weekly and I frequently give it away to Japanese friends. Not anymore. This recipe is fabulous. EVERYONE, including the picky 6 year old, LOVED this recipe. I have made it twice now, served as a side dish, but I can see making it on a large scale for party nibbles. The only change I was forced to make was the sriracha - the only thing I had on hand was Thai chili sauce, which worked very well and added a nice tang. I was generous with it - probably more like a tablespoon, as it was sweet chili sauce. I also fried the cakes in just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan - not near as much as the recipe called for. Seriously, if you have daikon in the house, make this. This recipe will change your opinion of daikon - it has changed mine - I now look forward to the daikon rather than dread them."
"Very good. I found it a bit too salty, so you can reduce the salt and when draining the daikon, press out some extra water. If you find that the patties are not holding, add an extra egg. I used garli..." See morec chili sauce and homemade corg (Caramelized Onion and Roasted Garlic) jelly as sauces. Excellent."
"Yummy! I skipped direction #1 and instead grated my daikon the night prior [tip from the previous reviewer] and squeeze the liquid out before use. Added 1 tsp of Sriracha because I like the tang.

[Must have taste buds for daikon radish.] This recipe is a keeper, thank you!"
