Cooking Time

17 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 250g packet 90-second brown rice
  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat milk
  • 1 cup (165g) chopped leg ham
  • 1 large carrot, peeled, grated
  • 1 large zucchini, grated
  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup grated extra-light tasty cheese
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat tzatziki dip
  • 30g baby rocket


  1. Cook rice following packet directions. Sift flour into a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Lightly whisk eggs and milk in a jug. Add to flour, stirring until smooth. Add rice, ham, carrot, zucchini, green onions and cheese. Stir to combine.
  2. Spray a 22cm (base) non-stick frying pan with oil. Heat over medium heat. Pour rice mixture into pan. Smooth surface. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until mixture begins to set and edges start to brown. Remove from heat.
  3. Preheat grill on medium heat. Place fritter, still in pan, under grill. Cook for 5 minutes or until light golden and set in centre. Use a spatula to loosen edges. Stand fritter in pan for 3 to 4 minutes before sliding onto a board. Cut into wedges.
  4. Arrange fritter on plates. Top with tzatziki and rocket and season with pepper. Serve.
