Rice timbales

From Cookipedia

An easy way to make a meal look impressive, I prefer these cold, but I guess you could omit the cold rinse and serve them immediately if you wanted them hot.

There are food poisoning risks associated with rice that is left for a length of time at room temperature and then consumed, so to be safe, refrigerate as soon as it has cooled down and consume the same day.
