Heat a large saucepan over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion; cook for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add rice; cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add water and salt; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 15 minutes. Stir in peas and grated cheese; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Cover, remove from heat, and let stand 15 minutes.
Combine egg whites and egg in a large bowl. Add rice mixture, stirring until blended.
Heat oil in a nonstick griddle or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Spoon 1/2 cup rice mixture per pancake onto hot pan, spreading each to a 4-inch diameter. Cook 6 minutes on each side or until the bottoms are browned. Garnish with shaved cheese, if desired.
I gave the written recipe 3 stars, however the final product that I made deserves 4. I made the pancakes by first making a traditional risotto (using wine and stirring in broth in batches). This helped the flavor significantly. Using just water like the recipe stated would have been much too bland for me. Although this way took longer, it helped the results greatly and I would make them again like this.
