How to Make ITALIAN MINI RICE BALLS

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook rice as directed and let cool. Mix rice well with all other ingredients EXCEPT breadcrumbs. Shape into balls (slightly bigger than the size of a walnut) and roll in seasoned breadcrumbs. Refrigerate for several hours – preferably overnight. Heat oil to 375 degrees and fry 4-5 at a time for only 1-2 minutes until golden. Drain on paper towels and serve.

    *It’s important the rice balls remain very cold before frying and the oil remains very hot.
    *Makes about 24-25 rice balls
