Made lots if plain rice yesterday for the dinner party and I have nearly a saucepan if it left. I'd really like to make Arancini but most recipes seem to require deep frying. Would shallow frying be okay? What other things could I make with leftover rice? Thanks.

Is it risotto rice? If not, I don't think you'll be able to make arancini as they won't stick together. If so,yes,you can shallow fry them.

It won't work for arancini unless it's risotto rice, as Onykahonie says. What about fried rice - add chopped veggies, shallow fry till thoroughly hot, then quickly mix in a couple of beaten eggs.

Used basmati rice. It worked, but they were more like burgers/rissoles as I added kidney beans in for protein and made them bigger.

Thanks everyone.
