1.5 cups Risotto (We suggest preparing the risotto the night before, using Tenuta San Carlo Carnaroli Rice.)
2 ounces Pecorino
⅓ cup Rice Flour
1 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
4 cups Peanut Oil
1 glass (approx.) of Cold Water
In a bowl, whisk the eggs and flour. Slowly add the cold water until a smooth, uniform batter forms.
Add the risotto, grated cheese, and pepper. Mix together.
Using two spoons, form the batter into balls, approximately 2-3 inches in diameter.
Heat the oil in a frying pan. Fry the balls, two at a time, until they become golden brown. Remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon and place them on a tray covered with absorbent paper.
The rice balls are best enjoyed warm, but they’re also delicious as a picnic snack on the beach at Tenuta San Carlo!
