•​​ 200 gr brown rice
•​​ 100 gr boiled garden peas
•​​ 3 tbsp passata
•​​ fresh basil
•​​ 1 tbsp chickpeas flour
•​​ 100 gr black rice flour
•​​ olive oil

Boil the rice in plenty of salted water for 50 minutes, drain it and put it back on the pan to cool down with the lid on.

Warm up the passata, add a pinch of salt, garden peas and the fresh basil and stir for 2 minutes.
Combine the rice with 2 tablespoons of water, chickpeas flour and mix well.
Using your hands form 12 arancini with a pointy end.

Rub the arancini in the rice flour and place them in a bake pan drizzling them with the olive oil.
Cook the arancini in the oven at 180C for 15 minutes.

If you would like to prepare the arancini the evening before, put the rice in salted cold water, bring it to boil and cook for 10 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and place it in the fridge. The morning after you will find the rice ready to use.

Steam them for 10 minutes.

Grind them in a mixer, add the egg, salt, paprika and mix once more.
