Arancini are fried rice balls coated with breadcrumbs, said to have originated in Sicily in the 10th century. The name derives from the food's shape and colour, which is reminiscent of an orange (the Italian word for orange is arancia, and arancina means "little orange").
There are approximately 33 individual arancini in a 1kg pack.
