Risotto is an Italian one-dish meal of rice and cheese cooked with other ingredients. It has a khichdi like consistency, which is very comforting and soothing to the palate, while also being very satiating.

In this Creamy Pumpkin Risotto, we have thrown in a smart assortment of delicious ingredients to make it super tasty. While cream and pumpkin sauce give it a soft, luscious mouth-feel, a splash of herbs and pungent veggies like onion and garlic give it a lip-smacking flavour!

Something that’s sure to make you lick your fingers, the Creamy Pumpkin Risotto is a blissful one-dish meal, which will prove to be better than even a full spread!
