Fried Rice Balls Recipe - A Great Way to Re-Use Rice

Updated on September 7, 2012

Everyone knows this scenario: you ordered Chinese food last night, and of course they give you way more rice than you could actually eat with the food that you ordered. What usually happens to the rice? It gets thrown out, right? Well not anymore. I came up with a great recipe that reuses plain rice in a yummy way: fried rice balls! The recipe I have here has Japanese flavors, but you can always mix and match what flavors are inside. The main things you need are rice, an egg, and flour.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup leftover rice
  • 1 egg
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • canola oil, for frying
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • sriracha sauce

Instructions

  1. Put the rice into a mixing bowl, make sure to de-clump the rice so that it's all loose and easy to mix. Add the egg, sugar, soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, scallions, and flour to the rice and mix it together. If the mixture is a little too watery, add more flour so the balls will hold together.
  2. Form the mixture into balls about the size of golf balls. Roll these around in the Panko breadcrumbs and garlic salt until they have been coated fully and evenly.
  3. In a frying pan (if you have a deep fryer, use that!) heat 1\2 inch layer of canola oil on medium to medium-low heat. Add the rice balls and fry them for about 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  4. Add sriracha on top or any other kind of sauce you want and enjoy!

      Great recipe. I always like to learn new and different ways to cook things. obviosly, your basic recipe can be modified to include such items as fresh bean sprouts, water chestnuts, frozen peas, small pieces of shrimp, ham or roast pork. Your recipe is a great thought starter.
