RISOTTO WITH SNOW PEAS AND CASHEW NUTS

RISOTTO WITH SNOW PEAS AND CASHEW NUTS

This is an interesting twist on the classic risotto dish. I added some turmeric powder and cashew nuts to add some crunchy texture. Worked perfect and will experiment some more with this classic rise side dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup risotto rice
  • 1 cup snow peas (I used frozen)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

Prep Instructions

  1. Heat upĀ olive oil in a skillet, add rice and fry it for 2-3 minutes on high heat.
  2. Add 2 cups of water, turmeric powder and salt. Mix well and bring to boil.
  3. Set the heat to low and simmer for 20-25 minutes until you reach the right rice consistency. I prefer slightly under-cooked consistency than over-cooked.
  4. You may want to mix the rice while cooking every now and then.
