Ingredients for Fried Rice BallsWhat you need:
- Basmati rice
- Sheep milk cheese
- Grated cheese (I used edame)
- A mango
- A fresh pineapple
- A lime
- Fresh mint
- Neutral oil
How much you use of each of the ingredients depends on the consistency and the level of sweetness you want to achieve.
How to Make Fried Rice BallsFirst of all, cook the rice. Afterwards, chopp the mango, the pineapple and the sheep milk cheese. Then grate the edame cheese (if you haven't already bought grated cheese) and and put it into a bowl. Add the rice, the fruits and the other cheese. Pour some fresh lime juice over it and add chopped mint leaves. Add some salt and mix everything. Make balls of the same size. If the mixture is too dry to make balls, add more fruits and if the mixture is so liquid, add more rice.
Heat oil (I used sunflower oil) in a pot and put the rice balls inside in order to fry them.
Alternatively, you can also fry them in a pan and move them to the other side as soon as one side has become evently brown. The pan method is a little bit faster, but the balls aren't fried as evenly as in the pot. To save time before my guests arrived, I used pan and pot at the same time.
Yippie, that's it! Best served with a fruity sauce or a fresh salad.
Enjoy and also try out other ingredients, for example tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, sooo good!
