Recipe's preparation

  1. Grate parmesan cheese for 5 seconds on speed 5. Set aside.

    Place onion and garlic into TM bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 7.

    Add oil and cook for 2 minutes at 100 degrees on speed 1.

    Insert butterfly. Add white wine and rice. Cook for 2 minutes at 100 degrees on Reverse and Speed soft.

    Add water, pumpkin and stock. Cook for 10 minutes at 100 degrees on Reverse and Speed soft.

    Stir in parmesan cheese.

    Once completely cooled, scoop out a dessert spoon of mixture and roll into balls, inserting a cube of cheese or some peas into the centre of each ball.

    Place flour, eggs and breadcrumbs in three separate dishes.

    Dust balls in flour followed by egg and breadcrumbs. Chill for 20 minutes.

    Half fill a large saucepan with oil and heat until a few breadcrumbs sizzle. Cook the balls in batches for about 1-2 minutes, or until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towel.

    Serve with sweet chilli sauce.
