Mushroom Risotto


by: vimalalakshmi

Risotto is the popular dish in Italy.We eat briyani,pulao and any other rice dishes in India.In Italy they love to eat Risotto.We can add any vegetables with this rice dish that will enhance the taste of the dish.I have added mushrooms because I love mushrooms.My Elder daughter loves Risotto a lot.I'll make this dish only for my daughter.I made this mushroom risotto for my daughter and her friends to have it as lunch.They loved it a lot and got more appreciation and positive comments from them. Actually in Italy they use Arborio rice for this dish.In my place i wont get this rice and even in many places in India i think.The nature of Arborio rice is sticky, big and short in size.So I decided to use regular Idly rice for this dish.I swear really I got good results and I feel so happy with the texture and taste of the dish.
