I recently featured a primer on how to make basic risotto, a Northern Italian rice dish. It’s very versatile and is delicious as a base for braises or as a main course dish on it’s own. But what if you have some risotto left over at the end of the meal? Not to worry – it can be transformed into a delicious snack.
Arancini are small balls of risotto that have been rolled a crumb crust and lightly fried. You can make them with plain or flavoured leftover risotto and I often make a simple tomato sauce to serve with them. I like arancini so much that sometimes I deliberately prepare extra risotto just so I can make them!

Bon Appétit and Enjoy!
