Rice arancini recipe by of 26-02-2015 [Updated on 10-05-2016]

Rice arancini are a classic of Sicilian cuisine, they are mini timbales of fried rice stuffed with meat sauce, cheese and peas. Their name derives from the shape and golden color that resembles that of an orange, although the basic recipe is more or less similar throughout Sicily, there are differences in name and shape that are often debated. In the western part of the island this specialty is known as "arancina", while in the eastern part it is called "arancino", in Palermo they are made round, and in Messina they are made conical;) I don't know about you, but I love them in all names and all shapes and this morning I propose my recipe. Small curiosity, on December 13, on the occasion of the feast of Saint Lucia, in Sicily and in particular in Palermo there is the tradition of eating arancine, I read an article last year in which it was written that on that day they are sold millions of arancine. A kiss and good day to those who pass by: *
