2

Fry onion

Cut half an onion in cubes. Sautee with extra virgin olive oil.

3

Fry rice

This is an important part to me. I sautee the risotto with olive oil and the onions. It seems to make a difference when eating al dente.

4

Add white wine

The traditional recipe adds white wine, but we didn't have so substituted with sake.

5

Add broth

With hi heat I add the first ladles of broth and lower the heat.

6

Lower temperature

Lower the temperature and pour the broth. Wait for the broth to almost dry and then pour more until your risotto is ready.

7

Keep adding broth and wait for dry

This is the point where you want to add more broth, till it dries again. Repeat till the rice is cooked to your taste.

Add saffron and mix

Add the saffron and mix well. I usually break the saffron with a spoon, before adding them.
