  • As soon as the rice is cooked, remove the pot from the heat, add a few flakes of butter and the grated Parmesan and stir in.
  • Season with salt and pepper if necessary.
  • Spread the finished risotto on a flat dish, cover with baking paper and let it cool (you can also prepare the risotto the day before)

  • Mix some Japanese mayonnaise with Spicy Chili Crunch.
