    UmmBinat's Note:

    "This tastes similar to latkes but even easier to make as there is no peeling involved. Double as needed." This is a perfect way to use up left over rice. Modified from

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4


    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup cooked rice, packed
    • 1 onion, grated
    • 1 large egg
    • 2 tablespoons tapioca starch (to be corn free, or you can use corn starch in the same quantity)
    • canola oil (for frying, to be soy free or you can use vegetable oil!)


    1. 1
      Combine all the ingredients except for oil and mix well.
    2. 2
      In a pan, heat oil for shallow frying.
    3. 3
      When the oil is hot, add a tablespoon of batter, pressing down slightly to form a flat fritter.
    4. 4
      Fry one side until golden and flip. If there are too many holes in the fritter, add more cornstarch to the batter.
    5. 5
      Drain fritters on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
    6. 6
      Serve with salsa, tzatziki or anything else that has a zesty fresh flavor!

      Quick, tasty and economical! To make I used leftover long grain brown rice. I only added half the amount of onion because my main dish had onion (forgot!). Subbed arrowroot in the batter. Melted a little bit of butter with the oil and fried each side about 5 minutes then transferred the fritters to a paper towel-lined platter to soak up the oil. Tip: I lightly sprinkled flour in the pan using a fine mesh strainer before adding the batter and that worked out for the fritters to not fall apart as easily. Once they were flipped over I sprinkled more flour just before adding the spoonful of batter equivalent to 1 heaping tablespoon. Served with Lamb and Mint Patties / Burgers, fresh steamed veggies (broccoli, yellow squash, carrots) and leftover cole slaw. Good meal! Thanks for posting! Reviewed for Veg Tag/August.

      Delicious! I lused the corn starch option. We ate them with left over Tzatziki sauce for a nice vegetarian lunch. Yummy! Made for Veg 'n Swap tag.

      Easy to prepare and delicious. They were very reminiscent of potato pancakes. I used corn starch option. We tried it out with a couple different sauces and enjoyed them all, including a basic ketchup up to a smokey remoulade. Thanks for sharing! Veggie Swap 44
