- 1½ cups cooked sticky rice
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
- cubed Mozzarella cheese
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1/3 cup Italian breadcrumbs
In a large mixing bowl, combine cooked rice, Italian seasoning, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix well.
Using your hands, form the rice mixture into a log. Divide into 8 equal portions.
Place a Mozzarella cube on each rice portion and roll it into a ball. Transfer balls to the freezer. Chill for 15 minutes, or until firm.
Meanwhile, in a shallow dish place the Italian bread crumbs. In a separate dish, place beaten eggs.
Remove rice balls from the freezer. One by one, dip balls in the whisked eggs, then coat with breadcrumbs.
Place breaded rice balls in the air fryer basket. Sprinkle both sides with nonstick cooking spray.
Fry at 390 F (195 C) for 10 minutes, or until rice balls are golden brown, flipping once during the cooking time. Serve warm.
