Spanikopita Arancini

I recently had spanikopita at a local restaurant that had light and fluffy rice in it! It was amazing, so I decided to try to recreate it at home. I had some leftover rice/spinach/feta mixture, so I made it into balls, coated it with panko, and fried it into arancini. I thought it quite tasty, so thought I'd share. I didn't write down amounts as I went, so I am ballparking--if you see an error, please let me know :) Prep time includes chilling time.
