Risotto Balls

Posted on June 2, 2010


I think I may have to rename our blog.

Balls we make?

It’s getting out of hand, I realise.

I have leftovers, I can’t bear to waste them. I turn them into something spherical, roll them in panko crumbs and fry them.

It’s becoming a habit. But hey, I created dinner out of something that would have got thrown away.

Plus an 8 year old and a small dog went mad for them.

Shortly after this photo Ernie stole one out of George’s hands.

BAD dog.

I can’t profess to this being a recipe.

It is caused by a chain of events.

Yesterday we went to Birmingham. I ate too many spicy Wagamama noodles

…too many Krispy Kreme Donuts and gave myself bellyache.

Therefore I didn’t eat my usual big momma portion of risotto so we had some left.

This much to be exact:

Looks a bit claggy when it’s cold doesn’t it?

I think it’s because this batch was made with an unctuous ultra chickeny stock which helped stick them together.

I just took golf balls sized balls of it, rolled it up and rolled it in seasoned flour.

Then beaten egg and panko crumbs. (bread crumbs would do)

Then, for the first time ever in my life I used a chip pan.

I salvaged this vintage item when my Mum moved out of her house.

I christened it today. I may never look back.

Spherical food.

It’s the future.
