How can leftover rice and veggies be used to win your kids’ hearts? It might sound like a riddle to you, but it is possible as you will see from this recipe. Cooked rice and colourful vegetables are used to make a mildly spiced dough that is shaped into balls and deep-fried. This is a wonderful way to include veggies into your kids’ diet, and an intelligent alternative to store-bought fries, chips and cheese balls. The Crispy Rice Balls are really so crunchy outside and soft inside that your kids will love it!
