Risotto for 1
I have never made risotto before. I live alone. I would like to make it for one person. Can it be done? What size/shape pan should I use - I notice most recipes are for 4 - 6 people and use 2 cups of rice - can you make it using 1/2 cup - or doesn't it turn out right?
Risotto cakes made from leftovers are delicious, as previous posters have said.
However, leftover risotto with a little bit of water added makes a great lunch too, if you're lazy and don't want to fry up cakes. And your co-workers will be so jealous.
Back to your question: yes, you can make risotto for one using any pan that's small enough. The goal is to have the rice in a thin layer covering the bottom of the pan. Nothing fancy needed.
