Instructions

Put 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter in a Dutch oven or other heavy-bottomed pot with a lid that fits tightly. Heat the pot over medium to high heat. When it’s hot, add the diced onion and cook for four to five minutes, until the onion is soft and golden.

Put in the ham that has been cut into small pieces and cook for another two minutes, or until it turns brown. Add the rice and mix it in so that it’s covered in oil. Add 1 cup of white wine and cook for 2 minutes, or until most of the wine is gone. Add 5 cups of hot low-sodium chicken broth and 1 teaspoon of salt.

Cover and cook on low heat for 15 to 17 minutes, or until the rice has soaked up all the liquid. Add the peas and stir them in. Then put on a lid that fits tightly on top and cook for another two minutes. The rice should be soft and have soaked up most of the liquid. Place the rice mixture on a big baking dish with a rim to cool.

As soon as the rice is room temperature, add 1/3 cup of chopped parsley and 1 cup of Parmesan cheese.With wet hands, use an ice cream scoop to make a ball out of the rice. Fill each rice ball with a cube of mozzarella cheese.

Then, use the rice mixture to make a tight ball around the cheese. In the first bowl, put 1 cup of flour. In the second bowl, beat 3 eggs. And in the third bowl, put 1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs. First, coat each rice ball in flour and shake off the extra.

Then, dip each one in the beaten egg one at a time, letting the extra egg drip back into the bowl. Finally, cover each ball evenly with breadcrumbs. If you want to fry the rice balls quickly, it’s best to roll and bread them all before you start.

Put a deep pot over medium-low heat and add an inch of olive oil. When the oil is hot (350˺F), add the fried rice balls one at a time so they don’t crowd the pot. Cook for three minutes on each side, turning them over so all sides turn golden brown. Place on paper towels, sprinkle with salt right away, and serve hot with sauce.

Tips:

Make use of risotto that has been made the day before because freshly made risotto can be excessively sticky. When risotto is a day old, it is more firm and simpler to form. For the purpose of preventing the balls from falling apart, it is important to make sure that the risotto has completely cooled down before you form them.

Be cautious to maintain a consistent size for the arancini in order to guarantee that they cook evenly. In order to prevent cheese from escaping while the risotto is being fried, it is essential to guarantee that the risotto is well sealed around the contents.

For the best results when frying, keep the oil at a consistent temperature of 175 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit). If the temperature is too low, the food will be oily, and if it is too hot, the exterior will burn before the interior is cooked. Variations: To achieve a variety of flavours, try experimenting with various fillings such as spinach and ricotta, mushrooms, or ground pork ragu.
