Cook rice following packet directions. Drain. Transfer to a large heatproof bowl.

Add salmon, coriander, cheese, beans, flour, egg and kecap manis. Season with pepper. Mix well. Using 2 level tablespoons of mixture at a time, shape into patties. Place on a large baking tray lined with baking paper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until firm.
Make the Dipping sauce: Combine yoghurt and sauce in a small bowl. Cover. Refrigerate.
