Instant Pot Risotto Tips:

  • What is the best rice for risotto? Arborio is the most common short-grain rice for risotto that is high in starch, which makes the risotto creamy and thick. You can’t substitute long grain rice, such as jasmine, for risotto. It just won’t work. With regular long grain rice, you won’t get that quintessential creamy texture of risotto.
  • Should I wash risotto rice? No, you shouldn’t wash the arborio rice for risotto, because you need all the starch for that creamy goodness.
  • How to reheat leftover risotto? Although it’s best to eat risotto right away, there is a little trick to revive leftover risotto. Slowly reheat leftover risotto, slowly adding chicken/vegetable stock to make it creamy and saucy again.
  • What are the best mushroom to use in risotto? You can use variety of mushrooms for even more robust flavor, but simple portabella, or white button mushroom are perfect for an everyday meal.
  • Also, if you have leftover rotisserie chicken on hand, toss them in! It makes a great addition. Cooked shrimp and scallops make a great addition to this risotto. Just stir it in at the end.

No stirring is required for creamy risotto. Instant Pot does all the work for you. This is how it looks when you open the lid after cooking.
