I had gluggy buckets of leftover, uninspiring chicken risotto. And to quote the blog where I got the recipe, 'when life gives you leftover risotto, you make arancini'. Arancini are deep-fried Italian rice balls. Mine weren't balls: I made them into patties since I, um, wasn't deep frying them either... and I didn't put cheese in the middle. Well whatever I ended up with name-wise, they were pretty good.
The risotto was sticky and easy to shape into patties. Then I dipped them in flour, egg and then breadcrumbs and fried them, with a generous serve of my father-in-law's famous homemade tomato sauce. The kids enjoyed them in their lunch box the next day too.
