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 diffe
* 1 cup of short grain rice or Arborio rice
* ½ cup of brown rice
* 1 onion
* 4 cups of vegetable broth
* 1 ½ cups of mixed veggies
* Salt as desired
* ¼ tsp. of black pepper
* ½ cup of Parmesan cheese
* 1 small cup of White wine (optional)
* 1 tbsp of olive oil
* 1 tbsp of butter
Pick and wash the rice in clean water. Heat a skillet and fry sliced onions in 1 tbsp. of olive oil for 1 minute. Add the washed rice and fry for 3-4 minutes till the edges look opaque. This helps seal the chewy quality of the rice.

Add all the diced and sliced veggies. Colored bell pepper, Broccoli, Sweet corn, Peas are there into my Risotto. Fry the whole mix for another 1 minute. At this stage add the white wine, which is optional. This gives a distinct flavor to Risotto.

Vegetable Broth: veggie broth of Stock is the flavored liquid made by boiling leftover veggies in water with a few spice. The resultant liquid is further strained to get Stock, while some of the residue in small pieces are left in broth.

For making a veggie broth, boil any leftover veggies, the unused stalks of coriander, spinach and other such greens are wonderful ingredients. Add a few peppercorns, bay leaf and a little salt to the water. Boil the water for about 1 hour at slow flame.

Add the vegetable broth made by the above mentioned process, ladle by ladle stirring once or twice in between. Follow the same step till the whole broth is used.

Add the butter and stir the rice. Sprinkle white pepper powder, salt and half the grated cheese and again stir.

Take a small bowl and fill it with the cooked Risotto and pres it lightly with the back of a ladle. Empty the bowl on a clean flat serving plate, sprinkle some more cheese and serve hot.
