Quick and Easy Rice Fritters
- 1 cup cooked rice, packed
- 1 onion, grated
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- Vegetable oil for frying
Combine all the ingredients except for oil and mix well.
In a pan, heat oil for shallow frying.
When the oil is hot, add a tablespoon of batter, pressing down slightly to form a flat fritter.
Fry one side until golden and flip. If there are many holes in the fritter, add more cornstarch to the batter. Drain fritters on paper towels to absorb excess oil.
