Chickpea and Rice Balls

Gluten free and vegetarian

100g rice + 240ml water

1tbs sunflower oil

1 small onion

1 garlic clove

1 fresh red chilli

2 tomatoes

1 egg yolk

3 tbs chopped coriander (if you don’t like coriander you could use parsley instead)

1/2 tsp paprika (I almost always use smoked paprika as this is what I have in copious quantities in the larder)


  1. Cook the rice.
  2. When rice is cooked, add all ingredients to the food processor and cook to a puree.
  3. Form into balls (if too wet add polenta or gluten free flour until maleable).
  4. Cook for 30 minutes.


Roll in gluten free bread crumbs for a crispy outside shell.
