  4. Cover and simmer about 45 minutes, or until rice kernels begin to burst open and most of the liquid is absorbed.

  11. Add remaining rice and red pepper mixture.
  12. Sprinkle with flour and stir in the egg with fork until evenly blended.
  13. Divide rice into 4 portions, and shape with moistened hands into 2cm thick cakes before placing on a plate.
