I have read the 5 rules for a good risotto in an old recipe book to get thorough cooking and mixing.
1. Proper cooking:
Toasted rice very well in a little butter or olive oil (I used the melted fat of the bacon this time) and cook with the addition of boiling broth.
To obtain a perfect manteca tura, You'll have to put out the fire when the risotto is al dente, its consistency is really extremely important for successful plate #8217; l & flawless.
2. Butter and cheese:
The first phase of the mantecaura risotto.
Add to the pan of rice, the cold butter (better if cut into small cubes) and grated Parmesan cheese.
To stir the risotto to perfection, It is better to use cold butter so you can exploit the fat part and not the liquid and also to have a creamier caused by change in temperature between the hot and cold butter risotto.
For balanced proportions, consider using 20 g butter and 10 GR of grated cheese every 100 GR rice.
3. The repose:
It is essential, to stir the risotto to perfection, that once turned off the fire and added butter and cheese, the rice is covered with a lid.
The risotto should remarry for 1-2 minutes so that it settles and it starts to release its starch.
4. The mixing:
She then proceeds with the proper mix of risotto.
Remove the lid, Stir to mix well butter and cheese, then shake the pan with quick movements and regular back and forth, so that the risotto a & #8217; wave.
If the rice is too dry, Add a few tablespoons of broth.
More the movements will be fast, more starch will release your risotto and will form a nice creamy sauce.
5. Stir in l & #8217; oil:
For matecare a seafood risotto, or if you don't have butter at home, You can run the manteca tura even with extra virgin olive oil.
Add the oil in the resting phase and then proceed as for the classic risotto mix.
To stir the risotto to perfection, It is essential the choice of rice.
There are many species of rice and although very good, not all have the same performance of preparation.
A Council: for a good risotto, used Italian products. They are tastier and healthier.
