Fried Rice Arancini
Arancini di riso
Arancini fried rice balls are Sicilian street food, but you might as well make your own version at home.
This Sicilian recipe for rice balls follows up on my contribution to the Dropout Diaries’ Street Food Festival. When asked to write a post on Italian street food for the Dropout Diaries the first thing that sprung to mind were the delicious rice oranges that can sometimes be bought from street vendors in Palermo and Catania or on the ferry to Sicily. Arancini come in a multitude of different version some of which are very elaborate using peas, minced beef and chicken. This is the simple (lazy) model made from fried risotto with a bleeding mozzarella heart, but they are still a great snack.
