An innovative snack of cooked rice, luscious sweet corn kernels and healthy spinach bound together by cheese and thick sauce, coated with batter and bread crumbs, and deep-fried till crisp.
The Corn, Spinach and Rice Balls feature a perfectly crisp top layer and a luxuriously soft interior, which makes the overall effect wonderful beyond words. Indeed, a great starter for a grand meal.

- Dip each ball in the prepared plain flour-water mixture and roll in the bread crumbs till they are evenly coated from all the sides.
