Brown Rice & Sesame Balls with Poached Pears

Rice Balls

3 cups cooked brown rice (gluggy if possible)

½ cup toasted sesame seeds

1 tsp shredded ginger

1 tsp soy sauce

1 tsp umeboshi vinegar

1 tsp mirin

pinch sea salt

2 to 3 tbsp of canola oil or light olive oil for frying balls

Poached Pears

4 medium sized packham pears cored & quartered lengthways

1 lemon squeezed & then quartered

1 cinnamon quill

1 tsp freshly grated nutmeg

½ tsp mixed spice

2 tbsp brown sugar

Topping

honey to taste drizzled over the dish

1 tbsp of toasted sesame seeds

In a large bowl mix together your rice ball ingredients. Form the mix into twelve small balls & set aside in your fridge on a platter to help them hold their shape. Meanwhile place your pears, lemon, spices, sugar in a saucepan with 2cm of purified water. Poach for 5-10 minutes or until tender & then set aside. In a large non-stick fry pan heat up your shallow frying oil ( you can deep fry the rice balls if so desired) & begin frying rice balls. Gently move them around to get an even crispy effect, remove & drain on kitchen paper when golden brown. Spoon out pears & arrange on plate with 3 crispy rice balls. You may like to use some of the pear’s cooking liquid as a sauce. Then drizzle over the top with honey & sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds. Serves 4.
