Easy Vegetable Rissoto

Risotto-a warm Italian rice recipe is a perfect dish for the winter season. Slow cooked in vegetable broth, cheese, veggies and butter this makes a delicious main course. The method of cooking and the rice variety used is what makes Risotto somewhat different from some common rice dishes such as fried rice, pilaf or pulav.

The creamy texture of Risotto comes with the special variety of rice used to make it, and the slow cooking to release the starch from the rice.The Risotto should be served in a flat plate and should be eaten within few minutes of serving; else it can become too dry.
