Does anyone know what 'richis' are, please?

They are on the food list for Michaelmas in 16th C. I thought at first it could mean Roach, but that seems to be Roche.

Also - what is difference between a 'full course' or a 'half course'? There is mention of a 'full course of richis', and a 'full course' and a 'half course of eggs'.

It is probably very simple, but I haven't been able to find it in any of the sources I have here.

rischew either of meat or fruit, li'l fried pattys or a filling in dough/batter.
There are a couple of recipes in Cury in Englisch for them.
