How to make Rice balls made with pulao

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
makes 16 balls

Ingredients:
2 cups leftover pulao/rice
1 onion chopped
1 small capsicum chopped ( you can use green, red yellow )
1 green chili seeds removed and chopped
1 tbsp chopped coriander
2 cheese cubes grated
Salt and pepper to taste (taste before adding as pulao and cheese already have salt)

2 tbsp plain flour/ maida
water to make a thick paste

Breadcrumbs to roll balls

oil for deep frying

Note: Leftover pulav had potato, cauliflower, carrot, and peas. that is why I have not added them separately. If you are making these balls with plain rice feel free to add as many vegetables as you like. your kids will still devour these rice balls.

    Hey Nidhi,
    Very nice recipe, looks yum… now no worries even if the pulao is left over 😉
    Just one doubt here, any fried item when made from cooked rice usually soaks a lot of oil and in turn looks very oily, is the same case with these balls?

      Thanks Devika. As these are coated with plain flour paste followed by bread crumbs the balls do not become soggy and oily.
