Thermomix Arancini Balls

Our Thermomix Arancini Balls are a great party finger food!
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 15


  • 3 cups leftover risotto
  • 1 egg
  • ¼-1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 100 g mozzarella cheese (cut into 1.5 cm pieces)
  • 2 cups panko crumbs
  • 4 tbs olive oil
  • tomato relish , to serve


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  • Place leftover risotto into a bowl (it's best if it's been left overnight in the fridge), add the egg and breadcrumbs and mix to combine.
  • Add more breadcrumbs if your mixture is too soft (it needs to be quite hard so that the balls keep their shape).
  • Return the mixture to the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Place the panko crumbs into a bowl and use your fingers to mix through the olive oil, so that the crumbs are completely coated.
  • Roll 2 tablespoon-sized scoops of risotto mixture, flatten out and place a cube of mozzarella cheese in the centre. Roll back into a ball to completely enclose the cheese.
  • Place into the bowl of panko crumbs and cover completely.
  • Place each of the balls into the hole of a greased mini-muffin tin.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
  • Serve with tomato relish.
