OMG from an italian this is not a perfect risotto at all!! The rice and the mushrooms have to be cooked separetly.The rice have to be roasted properly.After added the stockto the rice and the mushroom are cooked then put the mushrooms into the rice pan. Lemon juice instead of wine is a swear!! Just don t put wine.very important don t wash the mushrooms but brush them.Wait couple of minutes before serve so the flavour mix together for a better resault.
1. The best rice is the "Vialone Nano". With the Arborio you are not sure that is real Arborio (can be Karnak or other varieties)
2. No Garlic please
3. Too less wine, in a too cool pot.
But, considering all, it's a good video
When the risotto is perfectly cooked you should be able to tilt the plate on a good angle for a couple seconds and the risotto should roll down slow enough to get hight then slide, but not so fast as to slide off the plate. Italians call this "l'onda," meaning the wave. Properly cooked risotto should not be able to hold much height, while at the same time it should not go flat across.
Also the idea of "al dente" applies here, meaning firm enough to give "bite" but not mushy.
Liquids should not seep from rice cluster as well. When in doubt, butter and shaved parm can help ticken and give creaminess. To truly master this try only using olive oil and stock, then let the starch in the rice be extracted with time for the creaminess.
This dish might taste good with cheese n mushrooms, however this dish is not a perfect risotto.
Pro tip, always wash the rice first to minimise sticking to the sides of the pot. Put the uncooked rice in a colander and run cold tap water through it until the water runs clear in the bottom of the sink. The rice will still stick regardless if you dont keep it moving mind you
Said by an Italian who makes really good risotto: it’a a very bad recipe it lacks of the mantecatura, the final stage, the most important for the risotto and the toasting of the rice the starting stage, without it the rice tastes like boiled rice. You wouldn’t add the mushrooms at the beginning but cook them apart or add them the last 5 minutes there are many more mistakes which don’t make it a real risotto, but I don’t know what the american idea of this dish is
