Preparation of agretti risotto with saffron and lemon

  2. Continue by peeling the shallot , chop it finely and brown it in a saucepan with a drizzle of olive oil.
  3. Add the rice and let it shear for a minute, then gradually add the boiling broth, stirring constantly. Continue cooking as for a classic risotto, adding the hot liquid when necessary. A few minutes after the end of cooking, add the saffron diluted in a cup of warm water.
  4. Serve the risotto and decorate with the agretti and lemon zest. Serve hot and… enjoy your meal!
