4 secrets for the perfect risotto with Thermomix®
Thanks to Thermomix®, all you need to do to make the perfect risotto is gather your ingredients. If you want to get creative and try your own recipe, check out our tips:
1) Always choose a rice that is suitable for risotto. Some recommended varieties are:
Carnaroli: always al dente, great for seafood and meaty risotto
Vialone nano: rich in starches, ideal for creamy risotto, especially with vegetables
Roma: for risotto with a soft and smooth consistency
Baldo: good capacity to absorb seasonings and liquids, and has a great creamy texture
2) Toast the rice for 3 min/120°C//speed 1 before cooking to ensure your risotto grains remain intact throughout cooking.
3) Flavour the rice with wine or beer to capture the aromas that will give your risotto an extra special aftertaste.
4) Once cooking is complete, stir in fats such as butter and/or cheese, to give the risotto a glossy appearance and a creamy consistency.
