  • Set your air fryer’s temperature for few minutes at 390°F.
  • To keep the air fryer basket from sticking, lightly spray it with cooking spray.
  • Make sure the breaded suppli in the air fryer basket are not in contact with one another by placing them in single layer.
  • Turn them over halfway through the cooking period and continue cooking for another 10 to 12 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
  • Using tongs, carefully take the crispy suppli out of the air fryer.
  • Savor cheese, crispy suppli without using lot of oil.

  2. four ounces of small-cube mozzarella cheese.
  3. Two beaten eggs
  4. and ½ cup all-purpose flour
  5. 1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying,
  6. either Panko or Italian breadcrumbs


  • After risotto is done, allow it to rest for ten minutes or so at room temperature. When shaping suppli, let it cool completely if you’re producing a new one.
  • Line a baking sheet or pan with parchment paper.
  • Add breadcrumbs, flour, and beaten eggs to three different shallow plates.
  • Using two tablespoons, take a tiny portion of risotto and gently press it flat. place one or two mozzarella cubes in the middle.
  • Make sure the mozzarella is well encased in the risotto by covering it. If more rice is required to cover the cheese, you can add it. Suci should be shaped like an oval or a ball.
  • Shake off any extra flour after rolling the suppli in the flour. Then, submerge it in beaten eggs. Finally, carefully roll it in breadcrumbs until completely covered. Arrange breaded supli on a tray that has been ready. Proceed with the remaining rice in the same manner.
  • Refrigerate the breaded suppli for a minimum of 20 minutes.While frying, cooling aids in improved shape retention. Heat the vegetable oil in deep fryer or saucepan to about 350°F. *For baking or air-frying instructions, read the comments below.

  • Supli should be taken out of the hot oil using slotten spoon and put on plate covered with paper towels to absorb any leftover oil.
  • Serve them with some marinara sauce for dipping while they’re still hot and fresh.
