arancini
 n.pl.— «The name literally translates as “little orange,” which is what they resemble when cooked, but there is nothing fruity about them. Arancini are widely served street food in Italy, and every nonna there has her own variation on this theme. Arancini are little risotto balls stuffed with all kinds of fillings and fried to golden perfection.» —“Roll in the new year with arancini” News & Observer (Raleigh, N.C.) Dec. 30, 2005.
