Dilmah Black Tea with Peach Aioli

  • 200g mayonnaise
  • 50ml Dilmah Elixir of Ceylon Tea - Black Tea with Peach
  • 10g garlic peeled and minced
  • 10ml lemon juice
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. black pepper ground

Methods and Directions

  • Place the beetroot in a large pot and cover with water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 1 hour or until soft. Remove, and when cool enough peel and discard the skin. Cut into 10mm cubes and set aside.
  • Heat the oil and butter in a large pot. Add the garlic and cook for 2 or 3 minutes. Add the rice and coat in the mix. Pour in the wine and cook until the liquid has been absorbed.
  • Gradually add the stock, stirring continually over a medium heat until all the stock is absorbed, and the rice is cooked, for approximately 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and stir through the parmesan.
  • Remove from the heat and stir through the beetroot cubes until well combined. Set aside until cool enough to handle.
  • Roll the risotto into golf sized balls, pushing a cube of goat cheese into the middle of each ball. Place on a tray.
  • Place the egg in a bowl, and breadcrumbs into another. Dip the balls into the egg then breadcrumbs. Refrigerate until ready to cook.
  • Half fill a frying pan with oil. Heat to a medium heat and shallow fry the balls a few at a time. When browned turn over.
  • To make the dressing: combine the mayonnaise, lemon zest and juice, and chives in a small bowl. Mix well.
  • Serve the arancini hot on a bed of rocket topped with a dollop of dressing.
  • Enjoy with a side of Black Tea with Peach Aioli
