There are four steps to risotto heaven:
- Soffritto: Gently sauté onions in butter or oil for a couple of minutes.
- Tostatura: Add risotto rice and stir for a few minutes to coat with the butter or oil.
- Cottura: Add boiling stock as necessary for 16-18 minutes, until the rice is cooked.
- Mantecatura: Rest the rice for 1 minute off the heat before adding a knob of cold butter or cheese.
You can create your own risotto by simply adding your own ingredients at the appropriate stage of cooking.COOKING TIPS
- Do not wash rice before cooking it as this removes the valuable starch which makes the risotto creamy.
- Cook the rice slowly by letting it gradually absorb stock that is added little by little until the rice is cooked.
- Stir risotto continuously to prevent it from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
- Keep the stock on the hob at boiling point, so that the rice does not stop cooking when the stock is added.
- Risotto is ready when al dente, or when it is tender on the outside but it has a firm bite in the centre.
- Take the rice off the heat just before you think it is ready because it will continue to cook in its own heat.
