Crispy Butter Rice Balls

Crispy Butter Rice Balls

The bonito flakes and soy sauce give this buttery rice ball a delightful aroma. This is my favorite rice ball recipe!

Ingredients: 2 rice balls

Hot cooked rice
1 bowl plus
* Bonito flakes
Half a small pack
* Soy sauce
2 scant tablespoons
* Salt
a small amount
Vegetable oil
as needed
10 g
Soy sauce
1 tablespoon


1. Mix the rice with the ingredients and shape into rice balls. Form them firmly so they don't crumble later.
2. Thinly spread vegetable oil in a pan and fry the rice balls on both sides until browned.
3. Add butter in the middle and when it's melted, drizzle soy sauce so it mixes with the butter.
4. Gently coat with the rice balls and they're done!
