Arancini – (Homemade Rice Balls) – Italian Cook Laura Vitale

Arancini – (Homemade Rice Balls) Italian Cook Laura Vitale –

Arancini  are stuffed rice balls that are coated with breadcrumbs, and fried. Arancini are usually filled with ragù (meat sauce), tomato sauce, mozzarella, and/or peas. There are a number of local variants that differ in fillings and shape. The name derives from their shape and color, which is reminiscent of an orange.

In Palermo and Trapani, Sicily, arancini are a traditional food for the feast of Santa Lucia, 13 December, when bread and pasta are not eaten. This commemorates arrival of a grain supply ship on Santa Lucia’s day in 1646, relieving a severe famine.

In Roman cuisine, supplì are similar, but commonly filled with cheese. In Naples, rice balls are called pall’e riso (rice balls).
