Tomato-Saffron Risotto Milanese Recipe

Tomato-Saffron Risotto Milanese is a classic Italian dish that combines the rich flavors of tomatoes and saffron with creamy Arborio rice. The dish is known for its vibrant red color and aromatic saffron-infused rice. The tomatoes add a tangy sweetness to the dish, while the saffron adds a subtle floral note. This risotto is cooked slowly, allowing the rice to absorb the flavors of the tomatoes and saffron, resulting in a creamy and comforting dish.

Cooking Tips

  • Use good quality Arborio rice for the best results. It has a high starch content, which gives risotto its creamy texture.
  • To enhance the flavor, toast the Arborio rice in the pan for a minute before adding the wine.
  • Make sure to stir the risotto constantly while adding the broth to prevent it from sticking to the pan and ensure even cooking.
  • For a vegetarian version, use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
  • Leftover risotto can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat it gently on the stovetop, adding a splash of broth to restore its creamy consistency.
