In a saucepan, soften the fennel, onion and garlic in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Add the rice and cook for 1 minute, stirring, to coat the rice with the oil. Deglaze with the Pastis liqueur and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until the liquid is completely absorbed.
Add one ladle of broth at a time. Bring to a boil and simmer, stirring frequently until the liquid is completely absorbed before adding broth.
After about 20-25 minutes of cooking and stirring, the rice should be tender. Add half of the cheese and stir until melted. Adjust the seasoning. Spread the risotto on a baking sheet. Cover with plastic wrap. Cool and refrigerate for about 2 hours or until completely chilled.
Preheat the oil in the deep fryer to 190°C (375°F). Line a baking sheet with paper towels.
Place the flour in a deep plate, the egg and water in a second plate and the breadcrumbs and remaining cheese in a third.
With a spoon, scrape about 15 ml (1 tbsp) of risotto for each arancini and shape into a ball with your hands. Flour and dip in the egg mixture, drain well, then coat in the breadcrumb mixture.
Fry in the oil, about 8 balls at a time, until golden brown, about 2 minutes. Drain on the baking sheet.
On a serving platter, place each arancini on about 2.5 ml (1/2 teaspoon) of mayonnaise and insert a toothpick.
