Rice is popularly eaten in all regions of Northern Italy whereas pasta is popular in the South. This recipe is a great supper dish of caramelised onion rice topped with garlic roasted vegetables and a creamy cheese sauce. Caramelising onions gives the rice a light brown colour and sautéing the rice in oil helps to keep the rice grains separate when they are cooked. Long grained rice when cooked is aromatic and flavourful and is best suited for this recipe. Oven roasted vegetables have a unique flavour that sautéed vegetables cannot match with a predominant garlic taste.
- Clean, wash and soak the rice for 10 minutes. Drain and keep aside.
- Heat the olive oil in a pan, add the onion and sauté till the onion is browned. Add the garlic and sauté for another 2 minutes.
- Add the rice and salt and sauté for a further 3 to 4 minutes.
- Add 2 cups of hot water, cover the pan with a lid and simmer on a slow flame till the rice is cooked. Keep aside.
- Combine the vegetables, garlic, olive oil and salt in a baking tray. Toss well.

- Melt the butter in a pan, add the flour and sauté for 1 minute.
- Gradually, add the milk and 1 cup of water, stirring continuously so that no lumps form. Bring to a boil.
