New Orleans Recipes - Calas Tous Chauds (Rice Fritters)

This is another favorite recipe that was a wonderful treat for all the family growing up in New Orleans. I can remember this on celebrations such as someone's First Communion or a Baptism. Of course, a lot of times we just had them because we begged my mother to make them. It was usually served as a breakfast treat which I had with good Chicory coffee perked strong and black with sugar and evaporated milk. For the last 15 years, I have converted to artificial sweetener as a concession to age and my waistline.A good cold glass of milk helps it go down as well. In my opinion, I enjoy these treats more than the famous new Orleans beignets.These are not low calorie treats but then very little of my mother and grandmother recipes were diet food. So enjoy!
