Thanks heaps i was wondering what to use my leftover rice for.The rice cakes were very tasty,i did add som breadcrumbs to the mixture as my were not staying togeather.Next time ill make sure that I have enough brown sugar I only added 1 tablespoon as this was all I had left. Will make it again as this is a very inexpensive meal
I have only commented on this recipe and not rated as I changed so much in it. I used all the ingredients listed but ran into a few problems making it... Firstly after mixing my rice as in step one two hours later it was very very wet. I couldn't form the mixture into balls so I added the flour into the mix and managed to make a mix that would just about stick together as long as I was careful moving it to the pan. Once fried up they were ok though. With the glaze I ran into a couple of other problems. When boiling up the ingredients I added about half of my cornflour slurry and it had become the consistency of custard! I decided to use it anyway i dipped a finger in but it was so salty I just couldn't eat it. I used a samll amount to mash with the sweet potato to make a loose mash and binned the rest in afraid! Overall its not a bad dish it just didn't work for me!
I made these to use up leftover rice. However I modified the recipe slightly to use chives instead of the green onions, and I cooked a corn cob and added the sliced corn to the mixture. I served them with sweet chilli sauce. Delicious. Will definately make again as it is such a good use of leftover rice.
