Risotto rice is best known from the Italian kitchen. The rice is especially being used for the eponymous dish. Risotto rice has a round grain that can take much moisture without the risk of overcooking it. Of course, risotto rice is perfectly suited for making risotto. The combination of the starch content in the rice and the quantity of water that it absorbs, determines how creamy or sticky the risotto becomes. Due to the somewhat sticky and creamy texture is risotto rice also very suitable to make rice pudding or other desserts.
