Preparation steps

1

Thaw the peas. Peel the onion and dice. Heat the olive oil in a pan and sauté the onion, ground beef and peas for 10-12 minutes. Season with salt and chili powder.

2

Meanwhile, cook the rice in salted water according to package instructions. Mix the saffron with 2 tablespoons lukewarm water then mix into the rice with the cheese and 2 eggs. Form into 8 balls, make a well in the center of each ball and fill with 1 tablespoon meat mixture. Shape the rice back into balls, fully encasing the meat.

3

Whisk the remaining eggs briefly. Coat the balls in the flour, dip in beaten eggs and then coat in breadcrumbs. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and deep-fry the arancini for 3-4 minutes, until golden brown.
