Brazilian Rice Fritters Recipe

Rice fritters are a popular Brazilian street food. They are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. They also taste great, are easy to prepare, and can be served with just about anything.

Prep: 15 minutes | Cook: 5 minutes

Rice Fritters


  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 3 tablespoons half-and-half, or cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 bunch green onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons parsley or cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon coarse ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Peanut oil for frying
  • Kosher or sea salt


  1. Prepare rice according to package directions to yield 2 cups. Set aside. Using a fork, mix together the half-and-half and egg until combined. Mix in green onion, parsley, flour, baking powder, pepper, and salt. Mixture needs to be somewhat stiff for easy handling, so add a bit more flour if needed.
  2. Heat 2 inches of peanut oil in a heavy skillet to 360°F.
  3. While oil is heating, with floured hands, shape rice into walnut-sized balls. Fry the rice balls for 3 to 4 minutes, until golden brown.
  4. Sprinkle with salt and serve warm.
