Author Notes: Rice is a staple in our house and we almost always have some excess that needs to be used up. Besides making fried rice, I love making this quick rice patties. It is easy to throw together with ingredients you have on hand and can be served with or without a chutney on the side. I drew inspiration from the rice cutlet recipe on veg recipes of India.Dhivya Subramanian
