Rice ball

You have left over rice and you are thinking what to do with a bowl of rice. Make crispy rice ball. I bet you everybody is going to love that. Again it also can happen, that you have no potato in your kitchen and you are craving for vegetable chops.  You can substitute potato with a bowl of rice. I’d a bowl of rice in my fridge. I cooked rice ball yesterday evening. You can’t believe that was awesome. I think you can cook this as a starter for any party. I’ve found a recipe with rice on the internet. That is originally Italian recipe, named Arancini. I changed many of the ingredients and made in my own way.

Here is the recipe


One small beet root

One small carrot

One tbsp chopped coriander leaves

One tsp chopped mint leaves

One bowl cooked rice

One tbsp pasta sauce

One tbsp pesto sauce

Half cup bread crumb for coating

Enough bread crumb to make thick dough

Enough oil to deep fry

Salt to taste


Cut beet root and carrot into small cubes. Pressure cooks them. Let the cooker cool. Strain the vegetables in a bowl. Add all the ingredients except half cup bread crumb. Mix all the ingredients and fold thoroughly with hand to make dough. Divide the dough into small balls.  Heat oil in a heavy- bottomed wok. Coat the balls with bread crumbs and deep fry. Serve hot with pesto sauce.

N.B. Rice ball and ginger-tea is an awesome combination.

Sending it to Leaning to cook
