Step 1

In a large bowl combine cooked rice, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and baking powder.

Step 2

Add just enough flour to hold batter together. It should drop from a spoon and stay together.

Step 3

Heat oil in the deep fryer to 365 degrees F.

Step 4

Drop batter by heaping teaspoons into the hot oil. Fry in small batches until golden brown and crisp, about 6 to 8 minutes.

Step 5

Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
