Delectable Creamy Risotto

47

This creamy risotto is an excellent savory side dish that you can pair with braised oxtail recipes. This is a rice and cheese recipe with a taste similar to classic risotto, but with a bit more style. Arborio rice is short-grain rice used primarily in the preparation of risotto. Arborio rice has more starch present since it undergoes less milling than medium grain rice. So, Arborio rice must be cooked slowly with a hot liquid to release its creamy starch content without becoming mushy.
