Like our desi khichdi , Risotto also has a unique flavour and soft texture, which Italians find comforting.
Once you develop a taste for this Italian delicacy, you will find it a pleasure to rest every spoonful on your taste buds, with the soothing taste of milk and cheese, the classic aroma of pepper, and the crunchiness of mixed vegetables.
Interestingly, this recipe is rich in protein not just from the dairy products used, but also with the smart replacement of polished rice with brown rice. This not only increases the protein content, but fibre content too making this a healthy fare for kids and adults.
Cut the vegetables finely, so your kids will wipe off the Baked Vegetable Risotto faster than you can imagine.
