Recipe: Thai Spicy Rice Balls
Summary: I have been making these delicious rice balls for many events. They are easy to make, very economical AND they are so delicious. They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
- 4 cups hot jasmine rice
- 2 tbsp red curry paste
- 1-2 tbsp soy sauce ( I prefer Thai soy sauce but you can also use the Japanese Tamari especially if you are looking for gluten free soy sauce)
- a pinch of sugar
- 2 kaffir lime leaves, cut into thin strips (roll the leaves lengthwise and thinly slice them)
- oil for deep frying
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl except for the oil, taste to see if you need any adjusting. If it becomes dry, just add some water so they are easier to roll.
- Heat up the oil on the stove or use a deep fryer, fry until golden about 3 minutes.
