Risotto is an Italian rice dish made with meat, fish, or vegetable broth. It is the most common way of cooking rice in Italy. Its main ingredients are rice, onion, broth, and cheese. There are also additional ingredients such as different vegetables, white wine, garlic etc. added to the risotto depending on the variety being made. For example, in the recipe below, we are going to make a mushroom risotto, the most preferred variety.
A good risotto has a creamy structure with the rice grains being tender but slightly resistant to the tooth. In order to have this consistency, risotto needs a continuous stirring during cooking. Stirring hot dishes while adding ingredients as is the case when making risotto poses scalding risk. It is tedious, too. In the recipe below your bread maker will do this risky and tedious part of making risotto on behalf of you. You will just enjoy preparing the ingredients and then sharing the delicious taste of risotto with your loved ones.
