Cooking Risotto at Home!

Let me share with you my latest discovery!

While shopping at the Rockwell Moonlit Bazaar last month, I chanced upon a booth selling packs of grains and dried herbs. Looking at it closely, the package says Mushroom Risotto. Hmm.. interesting. I turned the package and read the step-by-step procedure, looks pretty easy to do.

I couldn't resist and bought myself a pack to try.

Finally, a couple of weeks after Christmas, I decided to try this interesting instant Mushroom Risotto and see if it can definitely satisfy one's sudden gourmet Italian craving.

Cooking this is simple -- I simply just boiled 5 cups of water and added everything into the pot. After the liquid has been reduced to half, I turned down the heat a bit and continued stirring until I got the right consistency. Within minutes, I can smell the mushroom and herbs! Mmmm

To make it extra yummy, I sprinkled some Parmesan cheese before serving.

The verdict: It surely was a hit with my family particularly with my sister! While it may still need a little more experimenting to get the authentic feel, it can definitely be an instant solution whenever you just want to add an Italian feel to your meal.
