In a mixing bowl, add all the ingredients expect oil.
Add a splash of water and warm up the rice in microwave for half a minute if using leftover rice.

Mash up the rice and make a wet mixture out of the ingredients in the mixing bowl.
Add more water or yogurt if necessary.

Heat oil in a deep frying pot on medium high heat.
