Easy Blender Rice Balls


2 cups cooked rice (white or brown)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
1 egg
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
Oil for frying

  1. In a blender, combine the cooked rice, grated Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley,
    minced garlic, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes (if using). Blend until the
    mixture is well combined and forms a thick paste.
  2. Transfer the rice mixture to a mixing bowl. Add the egg and breadcrumbs, and mix until
    everything is evenly incorporated.
  3. With damp hands, scoop out about 2 tablespoons of the mixture and shape it into a
    ball. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
  4. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully add the rice
    balls in batches, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.
  5. Fry the rice balls for 3-4 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy on the
    outside, turning them occasionally for even cooking.
  6. Remove the rice balls from the oil using a slotted spoon and transfer them to a plate
    lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  7. Serve the rice balls hot as a delicious snack or side dish. Enjoy!
