Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes Serves: 4-6



  • 2 cups of cooked short-grain rice
  • 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup of Italian-style breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Vegetable oil, for frying



  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked rice, Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley, and beaten eggs. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. Using your hands, mix all the ingredients until they are well combined.
  3. Roll the mixture into small balls, about the size of a golf ball.
  4. Place the breadcrumbs in a shallow dish.
  5. Roll each ball in the breadcrumbs until it is fully coated.
  6. Heat the vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
  7. Fry the rice balls in the hot oil until they are golden brown on all sides, about 2-3 minutes per side.
  8. Use a slotted spoon to remove the rice balls from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.
  9. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
