I got the idea for this recipe from one of our family gatherings. I love the simplicity of this dish, it is simple and complex at the same time. Mostly, it is a fun dish. It really is simple to put together and delicious when served with Tomato Sauce. It is also a great way to use up your leftover rice.

Stuffed fried rice balls recipe



Ingredients:

• 1½ cups rice, cooked
• 1 small onion, chopped
• 3 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 tsp. fresh coriander leaves, chopped
• ½ tsp. dried thyme
• ¾ kg minced meat
• 1 Tbsp. tomato paste
• 3 eggs, beaten
• salt and pepper, to taste
• 1 cup breadcrumbs
• oil, for frying


Directions:

In a large bowl, mix the rice and eggs. Stir until well mixed.

Heat a large pan over medium-high heat, combine oil, onion, garlic, coriander leaves, and dried thyme. Fry for 5 minutes while stirring. Add tomato paste and continue stirring for 5 more minutes. Now, add the minced meat, season with salt and pepper. Stir-fry for another few minutes then take off the heat.

To make the rice balls, scoop about a small handful of rice and roll it into a ball, flatten it out and make a small hollow in the middle. Scoop a generous tablespoon of meat stuffing into the center of rice patty and working with your hands fold the rice over the meat, forming it into a ball. Coat the rice ball in breadcrumbs.

Heat the cooking oil in a large frying pan and fry the rice balls for about 3 minutes or until golden brown on the outside.

Remove from oil and rest on paper towel to drain off any excess oil. Serve with tomato sauce.
