Rice Floddies


A delicious and simple way to use any leftover rice. Quick and versatile, they can be topped with a variety of ingredients and you can make several small ones or two big ones, like a pancake.

You can add Moroccan or Indian spices such as turmeric, coriander, chilli or harissa, to give some tasty alternatives. Omit the cheese. 

Always take care to chill your rice immediately after cooking.
