    Preparation time

    45 minutes


  • 300 g rice
  • 1 Palacios chorizo (not the spicy variety)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 egg
  • Flour and beaten egg (for the coating)
  • Water
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt
  • Parsley


Chop the Palacios chorizo into pieces and simmer it in a pot with plenty of water (at least 1 litre, as we will subsequently use the water to cook the rice) for 15 minutes. Then chop the chorizo very finely and remove the fat from the water.

Cut the clove of garlic in half and brown it in a cooking pot with a splash of oil. Add the water (750 ml) and a pinch of salt. Boil the rice on a high heat for 10 minutes, then lower the heat and simmer it for a further 10 minutes.

Mix the rice with the chorizo, add an egg and a little chopped parsley. Knead the mixture by hand until it forms a compacted mass.

Form the mixture into croquette shapes, then dredge the croquettes in flour and beaten egg and fry them.
