What are arancini?
Arancini are Italian rice balls stuffed and coated in breadcrumbs and deep fried. Sometimes they have tasty things inside – like Toonish!
Finely chop basil, onion and grate lemon zest.
Heat up olive oil in a pot, fry onions 2 min, add risotto rice and fry another minute.
Add white wine and bring to the boil. Crumble one bouillon cube and add a little water at a time, stirring, until all the water has boiled in and the risotto rice is cooked through. The risotto is ready after 18-20 minutes. Stir in the basil and lemon zest after half the time.
Turn down butter and grated parmesan cheese. Taste with a little salt and freshly ground black pepper. Let cool.
Mix the Toonish and chickpea spade into the risotto. Shape into round balls. Dip in breadcrumbs and place on a platter.
Fry the arancini balls golden brown in rapeseed oil and let drain on a plate with kitchen paper.
