Arancini Balls


  • 570 g cooked rice
  • 125 g leftover curried beef mince
  • 1 tbsp ground garlic
  • ½ tbsp Aromat
  • ½ tbsp mixed Herbs
  • 100 g parmesan
  • 2 tbsp grated mozzarella
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 100 g plain flour
  • 100 g breadcrumbs
  • Arrabiata sauce and extra parmesan for serving


  1. Put the leftover rice into a bowl and season the rice with garlic, Aromat and mixed herbs.
  2. Add the Parmesan and grated Mozzarella, and mix all the ingredients together. (If your rice isn’t sticky enough to hold itself in a small ball, at this stage – crack one egg into the rice and mix it all together.)
  3. With damp hands, create a mini patty like shape in your hand, then use 1-2 tsp of the beef and place into the middle of the ‘rice patty’.
  4. Take more rice and place on top of the beef and mould the rice into a ball, ensuring the beef stays in the middle.
  5. Repeat this and create 8-10 balls.
  6. Set up for dredging and put the flour, eggs and breadcrumbs into three separate bowls.
  7. Cover each rice ball in flour, then egg and then the breadcrumbs until all our coated.
  8. Place the breaded balls in the fridge for around 30 minutes.
  9. After 30 minutes, spray all the balls and the air fryer tray with cooking spray
  10. Select AIR FRY and set the time for 14 minutes at 205°C. Once the Air fryer has preheated add the balls (you may have to work in batches to ensure they aren’t too cramped inside the frying tray.)
  11. Turn halfway when prompted and cook until golden and crispy.
  12. Serve on top of a bed of arrabiata sauce, and extra parmesan.
