What kind of rice is best for preparing risotto?

In general, we can say that almost any type of rice can be used for risotto, or at least in the Czech Republic we often do it. But there are special types of rice that are intended directly for preparing risotto. You will appreciate them especially if you prefer a creamier consistency of this dish.

  • In Italy, traditional risotto is prepared mainly from Arborio, Carnaroli or Vialone Nano rice.
  • These species are characterized by the shorter and rounder shape of the grains, which resemble pearls. When cooked, they absorb more water and at the same time release starch, which thickens and creates the typical creamy appearance of Italian risotto.
  • Do not use jasmine or basmati rice to make risotto.
  • Do not rinse the rice in advance, you would wash out the starch unnecessarily, on the contrary, it is worth lightly frying the rice in oil.
  • Use broth, not water.

Rice is one of the very easily digestible foods that can be consumed by the elderly, children and people with different types of diets. In addition, it does not contain gluten, so it is also suitable for people with celiac disease. It is especially rich in carbohydrates and fiber, but if you supplement it with pork and vegetables with our recipes, you will immediately get a nutritionally balanced dish with a lot of proteins, vitamins and minerals.
