Once the rice is cooked and slightly cooled. Separate into 8 equal portions and press into a circular shape ( We used a circular jar and clingfilm for this.) Make sure that you compress the rice well, so the rice sticks together.
Once all 8 are pressed out place in a hot oiled frying pan and cook on each side for 5 minutes on a low heat and until golden brown.
Once cooked place to cool and make the mayonnaise by mix all ingredients together.
