Ingredients

Risotto:
Rice Balls:
Curry Mayonnaise:
Asian Aioli:

Directions

For the risotto: In large rondeau, heat the sunflower and sesame oils. Add the shallots and ginger and cook until translucent. Add the Arborio rice and toast for about 2 minutes. Stir vigorously so as not to get any color on the rice.

Deglaze the pan with the rice wine. Stir vigorously until the liquid is evaporated. 

Add 3 cups hot chicken stock at a time. Stir vigorously and constantly to create starch. Continue adding stock as needed, until the rice is just past al dente. Stir in the XO sauce. Spread on sheet pan to cool. 

For the rice balls: Heat wok until smoking, add sunflower oil and heat. Add the chicken and stir fry until cooked, then remove. Cool and chop. 

Wipe the wok clean. Re-heat the wok, add the sesame oil and ginger and stir fry until fragrant. 

Add the shrimp, sausage, mustard greens, bamboo, mushrooms, peppercorns, and sesame seeds. Stir fry for a couple of minutes until tender and fragrant. Add the scallions, Chinese chives and chopped chicken. Add the soy sauce and oyster sauce and stir-fry until the rice is coated with the sauce. 

Heat deep fryer to 350 degrees F. 

Combine mixture with risotto and form into balls approximately 1 ounce each. 

Using 3 separate bowls, put the flour into one bowl. Next, beat together the eggs and water in the second bowl and then place the panko breadcrumbs in the third bowl. Roll the balls in flour first, egg-water mixture, then coat with panko (Japanese) breadcrumbs. Deep fry until golden brown. 

For the curry mayo: Combine the mayonnaise, curry powder, and lemon juice and adjust if necessary. Chill. 

For the Asian Aioli: In a small pot, combine teriyaki and Korean BBQ sauce. Bring to a boil and thicken with cornstarch slurry. Cool and add mayonnaise and hoisin sauce. Adjust if necessary. Chill. 

Drizzle the rice balls with with Curry Mayonnaise and Asian Aioli.
