Arborio rice is a variety of short-grain rice that is extra starchy and capable of absorbing a large amount of liquid—which explains the creamy, indulgent texture of a good risotto.

 

Serve your risotto with lots of vegetables!

 

This rice variety needs special treatment and lots of attention to coax out the velvety smooth textures that it can create. When it comes to using arborio rice for risotto, liquid needs to be added little by little, with constant stirring, until the grains are plump and soft. Serve the risotto immediately, because its high starch content will cause it to seize up and solidify—similar to how sticky rice in Pinoy kakanin sets when it is left out for a long time.

 

Shop for arborio rice in any major supermarket: be sure to check the aisle that holds rice and the aisle that holds pasta—arborio rice is Italian, which often keeps it clustered near grains and noodles that are used for pasta dishes. You can also order arborio rice online through Gerald.ph
