Arancine: Daring Kitchen

When life throws you risotto, make Arancini!

Oh so well said 🙂 We as Indians love anything that is thrown in a deep fryer in a way, Arancini is a crisp rice ball with a gooey center and a sauce to die for.

So, I made Saffron Risotto for this Arancini. It is super duper easy to make and more more awesome to devour.

So what all do we need for this?

A portion of risotto of your choice {chilled}

Few tiny squares of mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup… All purpose flour

1/2 cup… Bread crumbs

1 egg (This is optional as I made a batch with egg and one without egg. If you are not using the egg, you may use few tbsp milk)

Oil to deep fry


  • Heat the oil in a pan.
  • Take 3 bowls and put the flour, bread crumbs and egg/milk respectively.
  • Take a table spoon and scoop out a ball from the cold risotto.
  • Place a cheese cube in the center and roll it well.
  • Put it in the flour first, then the milk/egg and finally bread crumbs.
  • Once all the balls are ready, put them in the oil to fry on a medium heat. Make sure the oil is not very hot else the crumbs shall turn black as soon as you put them in.
  • Once they are nice and brown, take them out and serve with the sauce of your choice.
