Deep-fried rice balls from Sicily, also popular in Naples and Rome. These “little oranges” (the literal translation of their name) are made of boiled rice mixed with eggs and grated cheese, and filled with a spoonful of ragù or a piece of melting cheese. Each ball is covered with flour, beaten eggs, and bread crumbs. Finally it is deep-fried in olive oil until golden.
