Air Fryer Cooked Rice Balls

Air Fryer Cooked Rice Balls

Rice balls fried in an air fryer make a delicious snack or appetiser since they can have a crunchy exterior and a soft interior. This is a basic recipe for making them:


  1. Two cups of cooked rice, such Arborio or sushi rice
  2. Grated Parmesan cheese, half a cup
  3. One-fourth cup of breadcrumbs
  4. One huge egg that has been beaten
  5. half a teaspoon of powdered garlic
  6. Half a teaspoon of powdered onion
  7. To taste, add salt and pepper.
  8. Not required: chopped fresh herbs, such as chives or parsley
  9. To serve, use your preferred dipping sauce, such as marinara.


  1. Cooked rice, grated Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, beaten egg, onion and garlic powders, salt, and pepper should all be combined in a large mixing dish. Add the chopped fresh herbs, if using. Blend thoroughly until all components are uniformly blended.
  2. Form the rice mixture into a ball approximately the size of a golf ball using a tiny handful. Proceed with the leftover ingredients, ensuring that the rice balls are packed tightly to maintain their shape.
    For three to five minutes, preheat your air fryer to 370°F (187°C).
  3. To keep the air fryer basket from sticking, lightly spritz or brush it with oil.
  4. Place the rice balls in the air fryer basket in a single layer, leaving space between each ball for air circulation.
    1. Cook the rice balls in the preheated air fryer for 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside.
    2. Once cooked, remove the rice balls from the air fryer and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
    3. Serve the air fryer cooked rice balls warm with marinara sauce or your favorite dipping sauce on the side.

    Enjoy your crispy and flavorful air fryer cooked rice balls as a tasty snack or appetizer! Feel free to customize the recipe by adding other ingredients like cooked vegetables, diced ham, or shredded cheese to the rice mixture
