Cheesy Rice Balls

I love the challenge to use leftover items into preparing something new and fresh meal. This time I used leftover rice to prepare crunchy and crisp rice ball snacks. This recipe called Cheesy Rice balls which are deep fried snack and prepared with rice, onion, cheese and spices. It’s really superb and easy to make. This is a perfect meal which you can give your child in lunchbox or when comes back from school or play ground as an appetizer. I love the addition of cheese in this recipe which is favorite ingredient of kids. For me it’s the best use of leftover cooked rice, you can add vegetables in this recipe for making healthier snack.
