Mushroom Risotto with Jasmine Rice

Risotto is an italian rice dish. I had jasmine rice and decided to use it. So in short I kind of combined Asian and Italian cuisines. Nonetheless, it was tasty. And the best part it was quick.


1. Mushrooms - 1 box

2. Bell Pepper - 1

3. Olive oil - 1 tbsp

4. butter - 1 tbsp

5. Garlice - 2 cloves (minced)

6. Jasmine Rice - 2 cups (any other rice is fine too)

7. Chicken Broth - 3 cups

8. Parsely - 2 sprigs(finely chooped

9. Seasoning - oregano, salt, pepper, parmesan cheese

Preparation Time: 10 mins

Cooking Time : 15-20 mins


1. Cook rice using chicken broth. Add extra water or chicken broth depending on the rice you are using. Cook rice until well done and keep it aside.

2. In a pan, take a spon of oilve oil and a spoon of butter . Add the minced garlic pieces and then slowly add the cut mushrooms and bell pepper slices.

3. Saute on medium flame until they are fork tender . Add salt to taste and saute for 2 mins on low flame.

4. Now add the cooked rice to these sauteed vegetables and mix well.

5. Cook on low flame for aout 3-4 mins and add the parsley, parmesan cheese and other seasoning as per taste and serve hot :)

NOTE: Sorry about the bad picture, I was too hungry to keep clicking :) But tastes pretty darn good . So give it a shot!
