arancini ai funghi

yihii.. another MasBar task done! this is my second time joining masbar event, this time i really want to commit on masbar. this month's theme is 'rice'. as i am living in a country where most of the people eat rice everyday, i should make this easy. but in the fact, it's not easy for me. i've been planning on making this recipe on last Thursday, but there's always something missing from the ingredients. then i decide to make them today. today, i also have to make a quick run to the nearest supermarket to buy mushrooms. it's all because i woke up late and the mushrooms in the traditional market have already sold.

the recipe itself, is not that complicated to make. quite simple except in the balling part, part when we have to shape the rice batter into cylindrical shapes. it's worth the effort, though. okay, without further ado, i'll give you the recipe..

Arancini ai Funghi
modified from MammaMia Hidangan Itali

50 gr onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
150 gr rice, washed and rinsed clearly
300 ml chicken stock
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsp tomato paste
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp butter
1 slice smoked beef, cut thinly
75 gr portabello mushroom, chopped
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp parsley, ground
50 gr mozarella cheese, shredded
2 tbsp all purpose flour
oil for frying


  1. heat olive oil in a medium saucepan, sautee the onion and garlic until fragrant. add in the rice, stock, tomato paste, pepper, and salt. close the lid, stir occasionally so that the rice won't browned. cook until there's no stock left and the rice have cooked.
  2. heat the butter, sautee the smoked beef and mushrooms until half cooked. remove from heat.
  3.  add the sauteed mushrooms into the rice mixture, add in the eggs, parsley, and cheese. stir until completely incorporated.
  4. take 1 tablespoon of rice at a time, shape them each until becoming a cylinder. do it until all the mixture runs out. roll in flour and deep fry them until golden brown. remove from heat and drain.
  5. serve warm.
what happened in my kitchen?
  • i used baby shitake mushroom instead of portabello mushrooms (i like it more with baby shitake than portabello, i just love the shitake's texture in it)
  • i used quick melt cheddar instead of mozarella. i save my money for not buying mozarella ;p
  • i used chopped leek instead of parsley, i know it has different taste, but doesn't mean too much for me. again, i saved my money ;p
guess that's enough for today.. thanks for reading, happy cooking! :)
