Risotto Saffron

Give this risotto a go on a cold winter's night.

Ingredients

  • put the stock onto the stove with the saffron strand and bring to a simmer.

  • always keep it simmering so when you add it to the risotto it doesn’t cool the risotto down and make it gluggy.

  • finely chop the onion and sauté until transparent.

  • don’t brown the onion otherwise this will impart bitterness.

  • add rice, stir to coat and crack. about 2-3 minutes.

  • add stock to the rice, half a ladle at a time while continuously stirring, allowing the stock to be absorbed by the rice before adding the next.

  • if the stock is added to quickly or the risotto is not stirred regularly it will not develop that creamy texture which is famous for.

  • add liquid until the rice is cooked. the rice will still be slightly firm to bite (al dente).

  • remove from the heat, add parmesan and extra parsley and serve immediately.
