     Mini Arancini Balls

Category   Appetizers
Sub Category   None
Servings   40-45 balls

2 1/4 cups salt-reduced chicken stock
1 cup arborio rice
1 tablespoon olive oil
20g butter
1 brown onion, finely chopped
100g prosciutto, finely chopped
2 tablespoons pine nuts, chopped
125g mozzarella cheese, grated
1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
1/3 cup plain flour
2 eggs, lightly whisked
3 cups dried breadcrumbs
extra-light olive oil, for deep-frying

1. Place stock in a saucepan. Bring to the boil over high heat. Stir in rice. Cover with a lid. Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Set aside, covered, for 10 minutes or until liquid has been absorbed. Transfer to a bowl.
2. Meanwhile, heat oil and butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion, prosciutto and pine nuts. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes or until onion softens and prosciutto slightly crisps.
3. Add onion mixture and cheeses to rice. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside to cool. Refrigerate for 4 hours.
4. Shape tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls. Dip in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs. Place on a tray. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. 5. Preheat oven to 180C. Heat oil in a large, shallow saucepan over medium heat. Cook balls, in batches, for 5 to 6 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a rack. Place in oven to keep warm. Serve arancini balls warm. Note- Once cooked, arancini balls can stand on a wire rack at room temperature for 3 hours. To reheat, place arancini balls on rack in a 200°C oven for 15 to 20 minutes.
