  • its a rice and far as i know from watching and hearing ( not cooking myself) is you melt butter and sautee the risotto and then you slowly add chicken stock or something like and simmer. the rice will soak it up and you add till al dente and then you can add cheese parmasen or something. I would definitely look up a recipe though. I don't think I have all the steps. Good Luck!! you can make it so many different ways and its soooooo ggoooooodddd!!!

  • Risotto is made with arborrio rice. It releases its starch differently than regular jasmine or basmati rice. Itnis very creamy.

    I have a great risotto recipe on my blog
