Not the kind they serve up in Chinese restaurants. This is actual balls of fried rice – otherwise known as croquettes. Tonight I made a lovely risotto finished with cream and parmesan cheese. I let it chill in the fridge and then formed the mixture into bite size balls, coated them in breadcrumbs and then dropped ‘em in the deep fryer. I cooked them until GBD (golden, brown and delicious - yes, it's a technical cooking term) for a perfect grade. Risotto – yum. Fried food – yum. Fried risotto – hells yeah.
