Risotto. Risotto is a traditional dish in Italy. It is one of the most common ways to cook rice in Italy. The main feature of a risotto dish  is the maintainance of starch at the end of the cooking that binds the grains together as a cream. Explanation is extracted from Wikipedia. My first experience of risotto was in some restaurant 3 years ago. 3 years later, I had them again in Prego, an italian restaurant in Singapore and I fell in love with them since. I love the cheesy taste and smell cooked with some mushrooms especially but my friend (you know who you are) will reject a risotto dish with mushrooms. Mushrooms are good for you. Trust me.

I wanted to go cheap and went to buy a box of risotto 2 weeks ago. I spent a good 15 minutes trying to select the most yummylicious pack of risotto. I made my choice and chose , 'Risotto in Four Cheese from Riso Gallo'. It is  fairly easy to cook them. You just need approximately 12 minutes to cook R. I added mozzarella cheese and ham to them. My family is not a fan of italian food, so I cooked a humble portion of Risotto for myself. My mum saw me cooking R and she gave me a 'Yucky' look. Haha... My R turned out well and yum (solely in my own opinion)!
