Recipe by dianna619

This is a great recipe, once you try it, it will always be a favorite. I don't deep fry often but this is worth it!! I some times add mozzarella cube in center and have a little tomato sauce on the side The size of the balls will determin # of servings

These are the best rice balls I've ever made. I tried to please my children by leaving out the peas. It is a mistake peas are a must. I also like to cut up some jalapeño peppers to make it a little spicy for myself. Love this recipe!
