1 teaspoon Penzeys onion powder
12 ounces rice, cooked

Place the first 6 ingredients in a food processor and pulse until it makes a paste. Mix the paste and the cooked rice and shape into 1½-inch balls. Place the balls on a rimmed baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper and freeze for 1 hour. Deep fry the balls at 365 degrees until golden brown. Serve on top of kimchi.
