Rice, which is the first course of an Italian meal, takes on an exciting and wholesome avatar here, loaded with veggies. Risotto is usually made with special kind of rice called Arborio rice, which is extremely absorbent and gives a creamy consistency to the dish even though the grains remain separate. Since Arborio rice is not easily available in India replace it with brown rice which works equally well.

Believe me i was a bit hesitant to try this , was not doubtful about Tarla Dalal's recipe but was not too sure whether it would get the same touch,look and obvious the taste... But it was amazing.After we had it my husband and i thought we should have clicked a snapshot and posted it for Queen of the Kitchen -Tarla Dalal...Thanks.. A MUST TRY RECIPE...
