    Carolyn Jay's Note:

    These rice balls have prosciutto added for the meat lovers out there. They are excellent as finger food or a light lunch with salad. The risotto used as the base for this recipe is also delicious on it's own.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place stock and water in a saucepan, bring to boil. Reduce heat to low, cover.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile, heat the butter in a large saucepan; cook onion and garlic, stirring until soft. Add rice; stir to coat in onion mixture. Stir in 1/2 cup of the simmering stock mixture; cook, stirring over low heat until liquid is absorbed. Continue adding the stock mixture in 1/2 cup batches, stirring until liquid is absorbed after each addition. Total cooking time should be about 20 minutes or until the rice is tender.
    3. 3
      Stir in peas, parmesan, prosciutto, season to taste with salt and pepper. Spread risotto mixture thinly onto a large tray to cool for 30 minutes.

      Roll level tablespoons of mixture into balls; press a piece of bocconcini into the centre of each ball, roll to enclose. Coat the risotto balls in flour; shake off excess. Dip in egg and then breadcrumbs to coat.
    5. 5
      Heat oil in a large pan or wok; deep fry the balls in batches until lightly browned and cheese is melted in the centre. Drain on absorbent paper.
