Rice croquettes with stracchino

Crocchette di riso con stracchino

This recipe is very similar to the much more famous arancini. Nevertheless, these deep-fried rice croquettes with a delicious cheese filling are in no way inferior to their “competitors” in terms of taste! This rice dish is a bit time-consuming to prepare – but the effort is more than rewarded by the delicious taste.

Directions
  • First cook the rice in 1.2 liters of boiling salted water for about 15 minutes until the water is completely absorbed by the rice. Then dissolve the saffron in a little hot water with the vegetable broth and add to the cooked rice together with the butter and grated Parmigiano.
  • Season with salt and mix everything well, put on a tray, cover with plastic wrap and leave to cool completely for a few hours in the refrigerator.
  • Put the stracchino in a bowl and whisk with a fork until a creamy mixture is formed.
  • For each croquette, place a tablespoon of rice in the palm of your hand and flatten to make a small hollow. Fill with a teaspoon of "stracchino cream" and cover with another tablespoon of rice. Shape into small balls. Make sure that the filling is completely covered by the rice.
  • Whisk the eggs in a bowl. Dip the croquettes in it all around and then roll them in the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat sunflower oil in a pot and deep-fry the croquettes in it. Once they are golden brown, take them out, put them on a paper towel and let them drain briefly.
  • Finally, arrange on a serving tray and serve hot.
