Risotto is a northern Italian rice dish which cooked with broth and cooked till to creamy texture. It is Italian dish which contains butter, olive oil, onion, cheese, garlic and vegetables. Risotto, riso means rice is basically creamy and flavorful Italian rice dish.

This time I made dal khichdi risotto for khichdi festival which was hosted by Srivalli. In this recipe I used moong dal and Arborio rice instead of regular Indian rice. I cooked this recipe in vegetable broth to get more flavors. It is a really great combination of Indian dish khichdi and Italian dish risotto. I avoid parmesan cheese in this recipe. It can be served with curd, butter, chutney and pickle. It is very healthy and nutritious recipe and good option for lunchbox recipe.
