  • Heat the oil in a pan, add the black Venus rice and sauté, stirring, for approx. 2 mins. Pour in the wine and reduce completely. Stirring frequently, add the stock a little at a time so that the rice is always just covered with liquid, simmer for approx. 40 mins. Stir in the parmesan, allow to cool, then stir in the egg and flour. Cut the mozzarella into 8 cubes/pieces, mix with the pesto. To make the rice balls, place a tablespoon of rice in the palm of your hand, create a hollow, place one piece of mozzarella in the hollow, cover with a tablespoon of rice and shape into a ball. Make a total of 8 balls. Roll the balls in the sesame seeds. Heat the oil in a frying pan to approx. 170°C. Fry the rice balls in batches for approx. 4 mins. all over. Remove, drain on kitchen paper and keep warm.
