Risotto is a creamy Italian dish. Unlike other rice recipes that require simmering in a pot of water, risotto is cooked very slowly by adding 1/2 cup of liquid at a time. This process allows the rice to release its starches, creating a rich, velvety sauce with soft but slightly al dente grains. Can You Use Regular Rice to Make Risotto? You can but the dish won?t be the same. Long-grain varieties (like White rice, Basmati or Jasmine) cook up fluffy, and the individual grains stay separated. Short-grain Ribe, Arborio or Carnaroli rices, on the other hand, sticks together as it cooks.
