Champignon RisottoCourse: Italian Kitchen, Main Food Recipes
Arborio rice 300 g
Butter 100 g
Onion 1 head
Dry white wine 200 ml
Chicken broth 1 l
Champignons 300 g
Salt to taste
- Finely chop the onion and fry in a saucepan on the butter until the onion smells fried, add the finely chopped champignons, fry them until they release the water. Then add the rice to the skillet and fry it with the onions and mushrooms for two minutes, stirring constantly.
- Pour rice and onion with chicken broth and wine. Boil without a lid, stirring constantly. When the broth and wine are half evaporated, add a tiny pinch of saffron and salt. Stir, boil until rice is cooked. If the liquid boils out too early, add water, wine or broth.
- Constant stirring is the most important part of risotto cooking technology. No less important is the final state of rice – al dente, between raw and boiled, closer to boiled – and the consistency of risotto, it should not be crumbly, like a pilaf, but as if floating in a sauce.
