(riceballs deep fried with mozzarella inside)
Supplì is a deep fried rice ball with tomato sauce and phenomenally melted mozzarella which pairs perfectly with the rice. The supplì can be also prepared without tomato sauce (Suppli’ in bianco). Supplì are usually eaten with the fingers: when one is broken in two pieces, the mozzarella becomes drawn out in a string somewhat resembling the cord connecting a telephone handset to the hook. This has led to these dishes being known as supplì al telefono. The classic taste will put you in a whole other world of goodness.
