There are a lot of recipes for risotto. Some of them are very difficult. However, you can also find something simple and cook exquisite dinner even if you are a beginner.
Let`s look at the classical recipe for risotto with wild rice. For you not to make a mistake while cooking, here is the list of simple secrets you need to keep in mind.
The most important ingredient is the broth. It should be cooked in 15-20 minutes. It`s recommended to use chicken broth for the meal to be very fragrant and nutritious. Don`t forget to choose the best and the most qualitative ingredients: clean water, fresh vegetables and a good wine.
To begin with, choose a good chicken. It should be fresh and good-looking. If it`s possible, replace ordinary salt with the sea salt. Add a small pinch, not to spoil the taste and make the color of the dish darker.
Another important ingredients is rice. Choose Italian rice and cook it until the meal is half-ready. Do not wash it. In Italy cheese isn`t used while cooking the risotto. However, you can enrich the taste of the dish and make it more creamy, using this ingredient. Choose hard cheese and keep in mind that is should be fresh.
Choosing the wine, it is not necessary to buy the most expensive one. It`s important for the wine to be dry and fragrant enough. Speaking of the herbs, I can say that the only one ingredient you should definitely add into the pan is saffron. If you buy dry herbs, leave them in the pan with the boiled water for 40 minutes. Now let`s look at the recipe itself.
Be careful adding salt and pepper. You`ll are using salty cheese and fragrant spices. So all the extra ingredients can spoil everything.
