    Miss Annie's Note:

    In days gone bye, horse-drawn carts in the streets of New Orleans sold these wonderful, aromatic rice cakes. They have never been widely available in restaurants. They make a great breakfast or snack. These sweets were very popular.

      Had no idea what these would taste like, yum! Was looking for something gluten free to try for my son...I will try some ajustments to make it gf. also will try to bake instead of frying..Honey butter and a dust of powdered sugar and they tasted like a donut. Next time I will increase the nutmeg as I only used about 1/8 tsp.

      Omg these are so good! Thank you so much for your recipe. You saved me from dying from hunger and deliciously too! I didn't have nutmeg, but it still tastes very good without! I'll even try some onion powder and whatever I have. Thanks again! :)

      I made these quite small (1 heaped tspn per ball) using basmati rice for after-dinner sweets for Ramadan - very tasty and well-received! Thanks for a nice sweet treat!
