Tears of the Kingdom – how to make Veggie Rice Balls

Rice is common in some parts of Hyrule, though you may not find a lot of it unless you know where to look. A number of merchants also carry it, and you can find details in our guide covering where to find Hylian Rice, Fresh Milk, and Wild Greens.

Once you have Hylian Rice, you’re ready to start thinking about rice balls. To make Veggie Rice Balls, combine Hylian Rice with the vegetable ingredient of your choice. Flowers count as vegetables when it comes to recipe creation.

By default, Veggie Rice Balls restore health. That’s rather boring, though. You can produce secondary effects by adding certain ingredients to the mix. For instance, Sundelion and Hylian Rice combine to produce Sunny Veggie Rice Balls that help you out when you need to recover from the effects of gloom. Hylian Rice and a Stambulb make Energizing Veggie Rice Balls. There are all sorts of useful variations available, and they’re especially handy because the list of required ingredients is so limited.

If you plan to make a lot of Veggie Rice balls, harvest rice yourself instead of buying it. Hylian Rice grows rather abundantly on the slopes of hills high in the East Necluda region, east and southeast of Rabella Wetlands Skyview Tower. You can chop down the grass with a bladed weapon and sometimes produce bundles of rice and crickets. It’s not difficult to run around the area and gather quite a lot of rice to facilitate your future cooking endeavors.

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom is available on the Nintendo Switch.
