It has a high starch content which allows it to become creamier once cooked you can use other types of rice or grains like long grain rice farro or barley

But we'd recommend sticking with arborio

Step 1 

To make risotto step by step  which  There's no hard and fast line when it comes to achieving the ideal consistency however a good rule of thumb is for every one cup of rice use 4 to 6 cups  in a pinch

Step 2 

We're gonna bring the stock to a boil over high heat if you add cold stock to your rice it won't cook through or achieve that ideal creamy texture

Step 3 

As their stock comes to a boil we need to select the right pot for the risotto to make sure to use a tall pod as you continue to see that stock the rice will double in size and if your pod is too small it could overflow

Once the stock is boiling reduce the heat to a simmer or just keep it close by the important thing is that the stock stays warm bring your risotto pot to the stove and reduce the heat to medium

Step 5

Add your oil to the pan once the oil is hot it's time to add your Allium of choice we're going with shallots if you don't want to use shallots you can use other alliums like onions scallions or garlic whichever you prefer you're gonna cook

The shallots until they're translucent at this point add the mushrooms and butter cooking down until soft and tender this is gonna take a little while mushrooms have cooked down at the garlic thyme salt and pepper

Step 8

The rice until it's fully coated with a mushroom mixture you want to toast the rice but not burn it this will take a minute or two next add a splash of wine this adds a boost of acidity to the dish if you don't want to use alcohol you can swap it for lemon juice when the wine is cooked off that's the sign it's time to start adding the stock word to the wise patients really is a virtue when it comes to making risotto you want to add just enough stock to cover the rice

Step 9 final

Stern fairly constantly until it's absorbed don't try to rush the process by adding more stock this won't allow the rice to cook evenly and you'll end up with a soupy mess continue to add the stock bit by bit until the rice is al dente which takes about 15 to 20 minutes you'll know it's done when the rice has just a bit of firmness left in it

the texture is creamy if you can pull the spoon through the risotto and it slowly uses back in place you're done for extra creaminess and flavor  Add some grated Parmesan and stir to combine and that's it you're done risotto really isn't that complicated there's a lot of room for experimentation and customization

As long as you remember to abide by the  rice is my favorite thing in the world and risotto is just like fancy rice

Tips 

Ensure that when you include a spoon of soup or wine to the risotto that you hold up until the risotto has totally ingested the fluid before you include the following scoop. 

It's essential to mix continually, particularly while the hot stock gets consumed, to forestall burning, and include the following scoop when the rice is practically dry. 

If you come up short on a stock and the risotto despite everything isn't done, you can complete the cooking utilizing high temp water. Simply include the water as you did with the stock, a spoon at once, mixing while it's retained.
