    Place potatoes in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil on high. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 8-10 minutes, until tender. Drain well. Mash with garlic. Cool slightly.

  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a small saucepan. Saute onion 1-2 minutes, until tender. Add to potato with turkey, coriander, egg and 1/3 cup breadcrumbs. Season to taste and mix well. Chill 1 hour.

  3. SWEET CHILLI SAUCE: In a small saucepan, combine water and sugar. Stir over a low heat until sugar dissolves. Add ginger and chilli, and simmer 3-4 minutes, until mixture becomes syrupy. Remove from heat and cool slightly. Add mint, juice and fish sauce.

  4. Preheat oven to slow, 150°C. Line an oven tray with baking paper.

  5. Shape 1½ heaped tablespoons of potato mixture into flattened patties. Dip in extra egg then roll in remaining breadcrumbs to coat. Place on tray. Chill 15 minutes.

  6. Heat oil in a large frying pan on medium. Cook patties in 3 batches, 1-2 minutes each side, until golden. Drain on paper towel. Keep warm in oven. Top with rocket leaves and serve with sweet chilli sauce.
