Made too much risotto? Let’s make arancini! These fried, crumbed rice balls are deliciously crunchy on the outside and soft risotto on the inside. Arancini are commonly stuffed with meat and tomato sauce or mozzarella. Best eaten hot and fresh, enjoy!
Ingredients for ARANCINI
3 cups
Cooked, chilled
(or 100g mozzarella torn into pieces)
Plain Flour
1/4 cup
Black Pepper

2 tablespoons

1/4 cup
Olive Oil
2-3 tablespoons

Tomato Sauce
6 tablespoons

1. Use an ice-cream scoop to measure risotto into portions (3 cups of risotto makes around 12 portions).
2. Place a bocconcini (or a teaspoon or two of meat and sauce) into the middle of each ball of risotto. Roll risotto into a smooth, round ball so the filling is contained in the middle.
3. Season flour with pepper. Roll each ball of risotto lightly in the flour.
4. Whisk eggs and milk in a bowl. Roll each ball of floured risotto in the egg mixture.
5. Roll each egg dipped risotto ball into the breadcrumbs.
6. Heat oil in a frying pan until hot. Add arancini and cook over medium heat until golden all over and mozzarella is gooey in the middle. Arancini can also be oven roasted on a lined tray or deep-fried.
7. Serve arancini hot on a spoonful of tomato sauce. Arancini are best served immediately.
