Mexican Rice And Cheese Bombers

 
Its quite common to see leftover rice while doing a fridge raid. I almost stare at it for few seconds thinking how to get rid of it. Well you can still do something when it is just a day old....do not entertain anything beyond that. I know of quite lot of options where you can turn a day old leftover rice into something new.....but now that's too boring...you must have heard of lemon rice, fried rice, and rice that goes into idli batter. I finally tried to invent my own recipe with the left over rice sitting in my fridge. Instead of using my usual Indian spices I felt like giving it a Mexican taste. I suggest you too try giving some different flavour and experiment with it and do share with me your own version of this dish.
 
You will need:
 
2 cups cooked rice
1/2 cup Cheddar cheese grated
3 tbsp. pickled jalapeno chopped or 2 green chillies chopped
1/2 cup chopped parsley or fresh coriander chopped
1/4 tsp pepper
Salt to taste
1 small onion finely chopped
1/4 tsp oregano (optional)
1 tsp lemon juice
corn flour for dusting
 
Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well to a sticky dough. Take a spoonful of mixture and shape into small balls. Roll each ball into corn flour and refrigerate for 15 to 20 min.
Deep fry in medium hot oil and serve hot .
