Risotto is one of the dishes you will love to prepare in a pressure cooker. You do not need to monitor the cooking, you just have to sauté the vegetables and the rice, add the liquid and the device cooks the rice at the right texture.

For 4 servings of Risotto, simply double the amount of ingredients and follow the same steps while respecting the same cooking times as for two portions.

Leftover risotto without meat, poultry or fish can be stored for 5 days in the refrigerator and can be warmed over low heat by adding a little hot broth to the desired texture. Risotto does not freeze because it takes an unpleasant granular texture when defrosted and reheated.

Servings: 2

Note that the total cooking time takes into account the time the Instant Pot takes to start cooking as well as the cooking and resting time before the evacuation of pressure.
