How to prepare:
Peel and roughly dice the aubergines.
Heat up a pan and quickly roast with some olive oil.
When the aubergines are nice and brown, (after about 4 minutes) add the Venere rice, stir for about 2 minutes then cover with 900 gr of hot water and season with salt.
Simmer and cook for about 30 minutes until the rice is cooked and all the water has evaporated.
Put aside and allow the rice to chill for at least 20 minutes.
Season and mix the cooked rice with bread crumbs, basil, parsley, oregano and coffee powder.
Shape the mix into little polpette about 40 gr each.
Dust with rice flower and roast in a hot pan with the olive oil until nice and brown.
Put aside and glaze with Extra aged balsamic vinegar.
