The historical recipe of supplì
In her ‘Talisman of happiness’ Ada Boni, one of the first to write about supplì, describes them as follows: “They are cooked and seasoned rice croquettes, tied with eggs, which are filled with pieces of meat in sauce and diced mozzarella, then turn over the breadcrumbs and fried “.
He then adds: “The use of diced mozzarella is customary, and it is also nice because opening the supplì forms a long string of cheese. This is why the Romans call them” supplì on the phone “.
These are the ingredients, according to Boni:
“For 6 people: Rice, g. 400 – Wet sauce – Butter – Grated Parmesan cheese – Eggs, 2 – Filling: chicken giblets, dried mushrooms, ham, mashed meat, mozzarella – Breadcrumbs – Oil or lard for frying.
