Fried Risotto Balls

Inspired by a Sicilian favorite, the arancini, these crispy balls are an excellent way to enjoy risotto. And quite different, also. You can use leftover risotto also and short the amount of cooking time, or make the risotto on spot and spend about 30 minutes in the kitchen.

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
