[Italian] plural arancine

"Little oranges." A Sicilian dish of rice croquettes often made with left over risotto, with butter and grated Parmesan or Caciocavallo cheese and saffron, cooled, wrapped around a filling of some kind, such as minced (US: ground) veal,, rolled in egg and breadcrumbs and then fried. They may also simply be balls of left over risotto alla Milanese dipped in flour, egg and then a mixture of breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan cheese, deep-fried and served with a tomato-based sauce. They are fried until they are orange, hence the name. Known in Rome as supplì.
