Arborio rice is named after the town around which it is cultivated. These beautiful stubby white grains of rice hold their texture well during prolonged cooking. This makes them the perfect basis for an authentic Italian risotto. Arborio rice can also be used to make sweet rice pudding or used instead of Spanish rice in a Paella. The plump grains help to release starch during cooking, which makes for a creamy texture. This is a versatile short grain rice for making comforting sweet and savoury dishes.

4 ways to use Arborio Rice

  1. Use Arborio rice to make risotto. Typical method: melt butter in a large saucepan and add rice and mushrooms. Gradually add stock, stirring constantly, and cook for around 25 minutes. Stir in herbs, Parmesan cheese and other seasonings.
  2. Use Arborio rice to make rice pudding. Typically, the rice is soaked in a mixture of whole milk, evaporated milk, sugar and spices (such as nutmeg and cinnamon), and baked in a dish for 2 hours.
  3. Use Arborio rice in paella.
  4. Arborio rice can be used in place of standard white rice in Indian and Chinese food. It will give the food a creamier consistency than typical basmati rice.
