11 oz Rice
2 cups milk
2 cups water
1 orange
3 oz sugar
3 oz flour
1 lemon peel
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp liqueur (optional)
oil to fry

In a big pot put water, milk, sugar and salt and bring to a boil; cook the rice in it for 30 minutes at least. Set aside to cool.
Once it is at room temperature, add flour, the grated peel of both lemon and orange, the liqueur and the squeezed orange juice.
Mix well to combine all ingredients, it should look still liquid but thick.
Put a deep skillet with oil over high heat (when the oil is really hot, you can lower the heat to medium-high).
Try with only one fritter at the beginning, if it "melts" you need to add a little more flour and try again; when you reach your optimum consistency, fry them 6-8 each time, drain and put them over paper towel to absorb the extra oil.
Serve cold or slightly warm, dusted with sugar (or cocoa powder if you like it).
