Rice Balls — Don’t junk the leftover rice!!

As in the title, wasting food is wasting resource. Don’t do that!

Last weekend my friend made nasi uduk in rice cooker. I don’t know what was wrong, may be the rice cooker or may be the recipe he used, the rice was failed. It was a lot, 3 cups I think. And it was not edible bec it’s too soft like a porridge and not done yet. It was weird. Then he wanted to junk it.

Of course, we are the girls didn’t agree with him to junk that much of rice. Then we kept till the next day. By the way, my friend cooked the rice with about 600ml of coconut milk.

Then I found this recipe. This recipe is genius!! Below, I’ll write down the recipe.

FOR THE (failed) RICE:
– 3 cups of rice
– 600 ml of coconut milk

FOR RICE BALLS:
– (failed) rice
– 1 bag of spinach, cut the leaves into 4-5 pieces
– 1 onion, cut
– 3 garlic, cut
– 4 eggs
– 1 sachet of parmesan (I think it was 100 gr)
– salt
– pepper
– Filling (we used beef and chicken floss)
– Oil or butter

Steps:
1. Pre-heat the oven at 225 deg C.
2. Fry the onion and garlic with oil/ butter until fragrant. Add the spinach.
3. Whisk the eggs. Mix in the powders (salt, peppers, and any spices that you like).
4. Pour in the eggs, parmesan, and the fried spinach into the rice. Mix the thoroughly.
5. Take 2 tbs of the mixture, press it on your palm, put the floss in the middle, then close the mixture and make it like a ball. Use plastic to be hygienic and grease with oil to avoid the mixture sticks to it.
6. Put the balls on the pan covered with baking paper.
7. Bake them at 225 deg C for 20 minutes or until they look brownish gold.
8. Enjoy with sambal, mayonnaise, or any sauce that you like.
