pinch of salt
4 tablespoons of milk

1. In a bowl, mix the rice, flour, salt, milk, Parmesan, onion, herbs and eggs. Stir in the spinach and mix well. With floured hands, shape your fritters.
2. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a non-stick pan and fry the fritters in batches, until golden on both sides.
3. Remove the fritters from the pan and drain between two sheets of kitchen paper to absorb excess oil.
