Ginger Rice Balls

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by PinkCherryBlossom

One of my favourite types of rice balls especially when grilled and crispy. We buy our sushi ginger in thin slices in packets and jars, about 1/4 cup is what I use. Cooking time does not include time for rice.

Really delicious. The rice took up the glaze really well, they looked lovely and burnished! Tasty and filling. I saved one for breakfast in the fridge and it was just as good the next morning! Many thanks for the recipe.
