Yummm!! Ive been told by one of the other experienced consultants to use less rice, Ive been doing that at my demos and its working sooo much better. So its 380g of rice and 1000g of water and 100 g of wine....I must say its a lot more lucious and moist than using the 500g of rice

Looks like the stikethrough does not work.

Did you use the butterfly attachment to make this? I always forget to use it for risottos if it's not in the recipe and I did forget this time... spent heaps of time emptying it out, trying to add it, couldn't add it (hard to put in once there is some rice in the bowl already) and in the end I had to make it without the butterfly and it didn't cook... if it is supposed to have it used, could you please add it to the recipe so that others who forget will have the recipe work? Cheers.

no, the original recipe didn't have the butterfly used in it - it's from the very old EDC.

these days we don't use this recipe though - it's too thick and gluggy, we use ann's recipe (see the top comment) which does use the butterfly :)
