2 cups cooked short-grain brown rice

Organic sunflower oil for frying

Sesame Seeds

Shoyu (natural soy sauce)

These rice balls are delicious as a quick snack as they are, or deep fry them for a delicious crunchy texture.

Cook time: 10 minutes

Makes 3-4 balls


  • Roll the rice into balls the size of a golf ball. Squeeze tightly in between your hands so they stick well together.
  • Wet your hands in between to stop the rice from sticking to your fingers when rolling.
  • Roll the balls in some sesame seeds.
  • Heat some sunflower frying oil in a heavy based pan.  When the oil starts ‘dancing’ making shapes, drop a little rice in and test, it should float back up immediately.
  • Fry the rice balls until slightly brown and crisp.
  • Season with shoyu and eat hot.
