Rice Supplì with Tomato sauce, Peas and Mozzarella cheese
The supplì, already the word is “good”, suppli ‘, a suppli’ please, good ‘I’m supplì. The supplì is undoubtedly one of the favorite foods of the Romans, and perhaps more than any other food represents the essence of the Roman. The Roman who knows how to get by, who does not like “licked” things, who wants to eat well and on the fly, who prefers to eat with his hands. And it is precisely from the streets of Rome that the suppli ‘is born. A simple and good recipe like the citizens of Rome: rice with meat sauce, pecorino cheese, mozzarella, eggs, grated bread. The name was also born in Rome, but from French soldiers who were in Rome at the beginning of the nineteenth century, one of them, in fact, a great lover of the recipe, called the fried and breaded rice ball surprise, precisely because he discovered what was inside only by opening it. The name supplì derives from the Italianization of the French surprise, which means surprise.
