METHOD

Use left over rice or start from scratch by covering the rice with salted water, bring to a boil and cook over very low heat for about 20 minutes.

Remove the rice from the saucepan, allow it to cool slightly and mix with the grated cheese, pepper, basil and oregano (if using) and an egg.

If you prefer to use mozzarella make a hole in the ball insert a mozzarella cube into the hole and close the ball.

Allow the mixture cool for 30 minutes. Then wet your hands and form small balls.

Dredge the balls in flour. Beat the second egg. Dip the balls in the beaten egg and coat with breadcrumbs.

Fry the rice balls for about 5 minutes in hot oil until golden brown.

The best way to eat the rice balls is hot and accompanied by sweet and sour sauce.
