{tab Instructions}

  1. Bring 3.6 litres of water and the stock to the boil in a large pan.
  2. Add salt, lemon juice and rice, stirring until water returns to the boil.
  3. Cover the pan with a lid and boil the rice for about 12 minutes or until tender.
  4. Drain in colander and rinse the rice with boiling water.
  5. Put the drained rice in a mixing bowl, stir in the cheese and butter, a few twists of pepper and 1 lightly beaten egg.
  6. Shape the rice mixture into 7.6 cm long croquettes, roll them in the breadcrumbs, then dip them in lightly beaten egg.
  7. Roll the croquettes in the breadcrumbs again, then leave them on a plate to set in the fridge for 1 hour.
  8. Heat sufficient oil in a large pan to come no more than one-third up the sides.
