Recipe by Sandeep Khatri

Serves 4 pax


  1. 2 tablespoons olive oil (not mandatory)-use alternative oil of your choice

  2. 1 - onion, finely diced

  3. 1 - clove garlic, crushed

  4. Any mushroom of your choice

  5. 1 - 1/2 cups or (300g) any rice

  6. 3/4 cup (58g) any cheese of your choice (I prefer cream cheese either hard cheese)

  7. 1/2 cup (65g) plain flour

  8. 3 eggs, beaten- or substitute with a medium-light batter made from flour

  9. 1 - cup breadcrumbs

  10. Oil for shallow frying

  11. Salt, to season


  • Preheat oven to 150C-if you don’t have omit then remove this part (baking is healthy so but not mandatory)

  • Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat, add onion and garlic and cook 1-2 minutes or until softened. Stir in chopped mushrooms and cook 2-3 minutes until it sweats or release the water

  • Reduce heat to low, add rice and stir for 3-4 minutes or until evenly coated with oil. Add veg stock or if you prefer chicken stock as per your choice and stir occasionally for 15 -20 minutes or until rice is al dente. Add more stock or water if rice is sticking, but mixture should be slightly drier just sticky. Add cheese and season to taste with salt and pepper. Cool completely.

  • Roll heaped tablespoons of risotto into balls and dust in flour, shaking off excess. Dip into beaten egg or medium-light batter and then breadcrumbs. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

  • Heat remaining oil in a frying pan over medium-low heat and shallow fry risotto balls for 2-3 minutes or until golden. Drain on absorbent paper and place it in the oven to keep warm. Repeat with remaining balls.

  • Serve warm with a salad of your choice or choose simply any sauce you prefer mayo or tomato


Give it a Nepali Twist

  • Add half tea spoon of turmeric

  • Add 1 tablespoon of ginger and garlic paste

  • Add ajwain or jwano along with fenugreek just by tempering in hot oil

  • On the dry nuts side adding almonds and cashew will boost your immune too
