½ cup finely chopped parmesan cheese
5 ounces fresh mozzarella

¾ cup flour
½ teaspoon ground black pepper

To make

To make the arancini and mozzarella perfectly cooked, dip the rice ball in flour and shake off any excess. Dip the floured ball into the egg to drain off the excess. Finally, completely roll in breadcrumbs. We repeat.
Put the cooked rice, chicken stock, and 1/2 tsp salt in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer until thickened, 5-6 minutes. Add the parmesan cheese. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Cut the mozzarella into 1/2-inch-thick cubes (you'll have some left over).Roll the cooled rice into balls the size of golf balls. Press a piece of mozzarella into the middle of each ball, making sure that the cheese is completely covered. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.Place on 3 plates or shallow bowls. Break the eggs into one and beat lightly with a fork.

Dip the floured ball into the egg to drain off the excess. Finally, completely roll in breadcrumbs.
