8 oz. grated old cheddar cheese
1 cup uncooked rice
1 oz. finely diced celery
1 oz. finely diced onion
1 oz. finely diced zucchini
3 cups water
Sweat the vegetables in oil. Add rice and water, bring to a boil. Turn down to simmer for about 3 or 4 minutes then turn off and add cheddar, stir in well and cover. Leave covered till it cools down. In 3 small bowl put egg in one, flour in one and bread crumbs in the other. Form the rice mixture into logs and dip into flour then egg wash and finally bread crumbs. Heat oil in a pan and then fry them till nice and golden on both sides.
We garnished this dish with a tomato sauce and sour cream mixture and a couple of slices of lime. Garnish the dish as you wish, this appetizer is nice with a dip.
