Super easy Risotto Recipe - Risotto alla Milanese
A super easy recipe to make this delicious food in a short time
Serves 4 or 6
2 1/2 liters of Chicken Broth
1 medium onion
1/2 tablespoon of butter
half a cup of parmesan cheese
750 g risotto rice
salt, pepper and garlic powder
1/2 tsp. saffron threads or 1/4 teaspoon of saffron powder
Place in a pot 3 liters of water and add the chicken parts (you can remove the chicken skin if you want to make a fat-free broth), add salt and seasonings. Boil for an hour to make 2 and 1/2 liters of chicken broth.
Chop the onion into tiny pieces... do not cry! the risotto will be very tasty! XD
In another pan add some oil (to lightly cover the bottom of the pan) and when the oil is hot, put the onion cut into small pieces.
When the onion is translucent and slightly brown, put the rice.
You don't have to burn the rice, just until the rice would be transparent/ translucent.. Then lower the heat and add one or two
Add broth and mix... so the rice begins to absorb the broth. When the rice has absorbed the broth, add more chicken broth (one or two ladles a time).
You should add as much broth as the rice request, so it doesn't burn, but be careful! we don't want some flabby or watery rice.
Then, when the rice is almost ready, add the saffron
Mix the rice with the saffron powder, add cheese and mix again, then add the half tablespoon of butter. Mix all together to make a tasty and creamy rice. Then add the chicken pieces and cover up the pan until the rice is done.
I forget to put the cheese so I put it later with the chicken pieces. I recomend not to do that, because the ingredients would mix better if they don't have the chicken pieces. (add cheese and butter first, mix and then add the chicken pieces)
Do not put salt to the rice. With the salt that have the broth is enough. The cheese is quite salty and if you add more salt to rice it would be inedible.
Hope you like it! it's very easy to do and only takes a few minutes!
