  • 1 liter of veal stock
  • 0.5 -1 liter of water
  • 50 g butter
  • 400 g Italian short-grain rice: Arborio or Vialone
  • 0.1 liter dry white wine
  • 0.2 g saffron
  • 50g Parmesan, freshly grated
  • 1 pinch of salt


First , cut the onion into small cubes and heat the veal stock.

Add water into the mixture.

Place half of the butter into a separate large pot and fry the onions until translucent.

Place the rice directly onto the pot and stir continuously on high heat.

Then pour in the wine.

Once the liquid has evaporated, reduce the temperature to low heat.

Place the heated veal stock into the large pot with the rice.

Continuously stir the rice and add the saffron into the rissotto until it dissolves.

Stirring the rissotto makes it creamy.

Also, make sure that the rice is al dente and quite firm.

This procedure takes about 20 minutes.
