  1. Pour water in a pot and add rice. Bring to a boil, add 1 tsp salt. Simmer covered until rice is tender about 45 minutes. Drain in a strainer.Rice must be pretty dry.
  2. In mixing bowl, add flour, margarine, baking powder, beaten egg, 1 tsp salt, celery seed, BonaPetite Seasoning. Mix well.

  4. In fry pan, add 2 tblsp olive oil, fry in 3 separate batches. Heat olive oil over medium heat.
  5. Drop 2 tblsp rice and mushroom mixture into pan. You may use metal rings if you desire to keep into cakes or patties. About 3 to 4 minutes each side. Remove metal rings when you turn the cakes to brown on the other side.Before you flip over, sprinkle one side with paprika.
  6. Keep cakes warm in the oven.
  7. Serve with large slices of tomatoes.
  8. Cover with white sauce or cheese sauce.
  9. Note: add more flour if necessary so that when you drop batter it will not be thin, but will spread out into a round cake.You may substitute rice flour.
  10. Note: You might want to cut the salt in half, then if you want more add after cooking.This was advice from the reviewer. I am glad it was said.
