Risotto is a very popular Italian rice dish made with a short to medium grain, plump rice which is high in starch content. It is one of those dishes where the star of the dish is its simplicity. Risotto draws its brilliance from a good rice cooked in a vegetable/chicken stock along with some vegetables. The most common rice is Arborio but our idly rice works as well if you ask me. So go ahead and make this Leek Mushroom & Lemon Risotto for a deceptively simple dish to win over your lunch or dinner guests.
