How to make pomegranate risotto

  1. First of all, boil the broth, which must always be hot. Then take a fairly large saucepan with handles and brown the shallot in a knob of butter.
  2. In the meantime, after having peeled the pomegranates and obtained the grains, put them in a mixer ( except for 2-3 spoonfuls which will be used for decoration) and obtain the juice.
  3. Add the rice to the pan, toast it for 2 minutes and blend it with the white wine.
  4. When the alcohol has completely evaporated, add all the pomegranate juice and, once boiling, lower the heat.
  5. When the rice has incorporated almost all the juice, add the boiling stock a little at a time and bring it to the boil.
  6. At the time of creaming, turn off the heat and add a piece of remaining butter and the grated Parmesan and a final handful of pepper.
  7. Serve the risotto hot and decorate with the pomegranate seeds that you have kept aside.

The dish is ready, enjoy your meal !
