Can anyone recommend some top ristorante here in Singapore?
Make your own risotto. It is really not that difficult to make. The trick is to add water very slowly to the risotto rice while it is cooking and the choice of cheeses you choose. That's all
Sorry, I meant some kind of meat stock and not 'water'. You are right....chicken stock is best for risottos. Sometimes, you can combine different cheeses together before adding them to the risottos. Of course, the wine is important too...............but make sure it is not a cheap one, though for best results.
The best way to cook risotto is stage by stage.
1 Get the aromatics ready eg onions and garlic.
2 Heat some good quality, organic olive oil. Add your onions and fry till
aromatic and then add your risotto rice to the pan. Risotto rice can be
any short grain rice which will cook easily enough. Fry the rice and
onions further making sure that the rice is coated with oil evenly all
3 Now start adding your stock while still stirring the risotto at the same
time. Be gentle. This should take at least 15-20 minutes. Repeat
this process till the rice is cooked/tender.
4 At this point start adding the combination of your favorite cheeses.
Don't stop stirring while you are adding the cheeses :!:
Serve it hot with some freshly grated parmesan cheese!
