The Cheesy Rice Stick is a snazzy starter made with a dough of rice and potatoes perked up with appropriate herbs and spices. Portions of the dough are stuffed with a piece of cheese before being deep-fried to a perfect golden brown.

The cheese melts in the heat and coats the inside of the rice sticks, giving it a gooey centre! The Cheesy Rice Stick can also be served as an after-school snack for kids or as an accompaniment for tea .
