Risotto is a class of Italian dishes of rice cooked in broth to a creamy consistency. The broth may be meat, fish, or vegetable based. Many types of risotto contain Parmesan cheese, butter, and onion. It is one of the most common ways of cooking rice in Italy.

It also can be made using many kinds of vegetable, meat, fish, seafood and legumes, and different types of wine and cheese may be used. I used vegetables and prawns to be the broth and the rice is Five Sacred Grains. It took much longer to cook but the taste is really fantastic!

Five Sacred Rice has a chewer style than the other rice so how would you cook it tender but not overcooking soft? I did pay a lot of patience, when I smelled the sweet mixed with prawns and rice. Time is worth!

  • Chopped carrot 1
  • Chopped onion 1
  • Sliced mushroon 4 (big ones)
  • Fresh prawns 6

  • Boiled water
  • White wine 2tbsp
  • Olive oil 1tsp


A. Risotto Rice

B. Broth
  1. Chop onion and carrot and fry with a little bit salt by middle heat.

  4. Taste the rice if it still keeps the hards core, then can secretly cover the lid and turn a small fire stew couple minutes until it's your flavor.
  5. Fry the prawns without any oil and add the rest of white wine until they curl nicely.
