  1. You know the quality of rice is different and the heat needs to be quite high. Bet for the most parts you did it right. Try with different batch of rice.

  3. Hi Nice meting you Solomon from Ethiopia. Yes you can, make sauce out of it. Fry in olive oil onion, pepper and tomato together. Mix it with rice let the rice soak up the juices. Then continue the recipe as written. Add water or broth until done. Thank you for using my recipes.

  4. hi victoria, my name is solomon from ethiopia. i’ve bought arborio rice and have no idea how to cook it. because, we ethiopians recipe is different from in any other country. for example, when we prepare rice first of all, we boil water after that we add rice until it boils then we add tomato ketchup then we serve. or can i use by using onions, pepper, tomato and olive oil to make rissoto ? please just let me know as fast as u can !

  5. Looks amazing! I have been wanting to make risotto, but have always been intimidated by it. By seeing you make it, it has made me realize that I can do it. Thanks again for the lovely video.
