    Just made a risotto with rice pudding rice......it is similar to the proper arboreo (spelling ?) rice but a fraction of the cost.

    Try it, you might like it!!

    :D
    fry chopped onions, garlic and leeks in fry light
    pop in roughly 300g rice (makes 4)
    slowly add 2 pints of veg or chicken stock in 4 1/2 pint portions
    stir after adding each lot of stock to release the starch and make the rice creamy
    once all the stock is added then you can add other ingredients.....I use roast buternut squash, mushrooms, asparagus mainly.
    Add 50g (1/2 hex a) grated parmesan and stir until melted
    add salt and pepper to taste and voila....risotto!!

    You may need more/less stock....keep testing the rice to see if it is cooked. It should take about 25-35 minutes.

    There are some good recipes in the SW mag
