Risotto with Saffron

I ate risotto at my friend’s dinner and was quiet impressed with the creamy consistency, so I requested for the recipe which I am sharing with you.

Risotto is a class of Italian dishes of rice cooked in broth to a creamy consistency. The broth may be meat, fish, or vegetable-based. Many types of risotto contain parmesan cheese, butter and onion. It is one of the most common ways of cooking rice in Italy.(From Wiki)

1 cup arborio Rice
1/2 cup Fresh Cream
Parmesan cheese
Fresh Thyme
1 finely chopped Onion
Vegetable broth
4-5 finely chopped garlic cloves
4-5 tbsp White wine
2 tbsp Butter
Salt as per taste



Soak rice for about half an hour.
Heat a sauce pan add onion and garlic and sauté for 2 minutes.
Add thyme, little wine and rice into the pan.
Add remaining wine and broth and cook the rice till done.
Add cream, salt, pepper, parmesan cheese, saffron, butter and mix well.
