Arancini is an interesting dish from the South of Italy. You can tell this dish is influenced by the Middle East food as it has Saffron in the ingredients. The combination of Bolognese sauce and rice make it an interesting one. Carnaroli rice which is the big grain rice is the best to cook Arancini.
