Original recipe yields 12 appetizer balls

Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan, and stir in rice. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in onion, cover tightly, and cook until tender but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, mix tuna, milk, flour, parsley, sugar, and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Mix in rice, onion, and eggs. Mold the mixture into about 12 balls.
  4. Heat 1 quart oil in a large, heavy skillet or deep fryer. Fry the tuna balls in batches until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels.

Recipie was quite soupy when I made it, but I added some extra tuna and some bread crumbs and it firmed right up. Recipie is a bit vague on the frying section. I used 350 degree oil and about golf sized balls.

I had to triple the recipe to feed my bunch. They just loved them. Some dipped them in cheese sauce and some used cocktail sauce. Very good.

I never got to the end of the recipe as stated. I only added one egg and the mix was very wet almost soupy. No way this could be molded into balls. I did glop a few onto a griddle patty style and they firmed up but basically tasted like rice with too much pepper. Maybe it would have been ok dropped in oil by the spoonful but I didn't think it was worth the time or calories that would have added.
