Keys to make a good risotto

The variety of rice:

Always choose an arborio or carnaroli rice to make risotto at home. Now they are easily found in supermarkets. These varieties have a proportion of starch that helps the rice to be syrupy but not overcooked, with the inside a little “al dente”. You can also use Baldo, Maratelli or Padano, Italian varieties more difficult to find in our country.

The technique and the broth.

To make a risotto, after starting with an initial sofrito and the pearling of the rice and evaporation of a splash of wine, you must add saucepan to saucepan the necessary broth so that the rice never stays dry and at the same time it does not sail in broth. After a few times and after the usual 20 minutes that the rice takes, our risotto will be ready for the final shortbread.

step to make risotto recipe

  • The first step we will take to prepare an easy risotto at home is to chop the garlic and onion into small pieces. Next, we will add tablespoons of butter and oil in a deep but easy to handle pot. Let the butter melt and heat the oil well until bubbling.
  • When it is like this, you will have to add the onions and the garlic. Now cook for 10 minutes on very low heat until the onions are transparent. Then, take the rice and fry it with the onions. Turn up the heat and make the rice toast a little.
  • When it’s lightly roasted and over high heat, look for the wine, which is about half a cup of normal coffee, and put it in the pot. Let it boil and do not separate from the rice. While on high heat the liquor will evaporate and it will also quickly absorb the liquid. In about 3-4 minutes it will look like the attached image, where there is still liquid but the rice has grown a little
  • Now it is time to add broth. We lower the heat to the rice first. Next to it we must have a pot with broth made by you or using a cube or avecrem tablet; If you want, use homemade broth. What matters is that it is not too concentrated and that it is boiling on the side, ready to be used, with a ladle. So add a ladle of boiling broth to the rice, lower the heat.
  • Now it is time to add broth. We lower the heat to the rice first. Next to it we must have a pot with broth made by you or using a cube or avecrem tablet; If you want, use homemade broth. What matters is that it is not too concentrated and that it is boiling on the side, ready to be used, with a ladle. So add a ladle of boiling broth to the rice, lower the heat.
  • Once the fire is turned off, add the rest of the butter and the Parmesan cheese. Mix well, let it melt and taste. Do not touch the risotto anymore, cover and let rest 4-5 minutes. When the resting time passes, the butter and cheese and the fact of covering and lowering the temperature will make it thicker. Serve with more cheese on top and enjoy an easy and delicious risotto.
