How do you fix sticky risotto?

Chef's answer
If your final risotto has a sticky, dry consistency you can easily fix it by stirring through a little more hot stock, until you reach the desired texture. Remember to only add a little at a time though, otherwise you risk it turning too soupy.

    When it comes to servings, a good rule of thumb with risotto is a ratio of 3:1. That would be 3 cups liquid for 1 cup of rice. If you use this rule the risotto will be perfect every time because once all the liquid is absorbed this is the indication that the rice is done.Oct 17, 2018

    Risotto contains carbohydrates, but some recipes are high in saturated fat because of the cheese and butter that is used to prepare it. It can also be high in sodium. Adding vegetables and a lean protein helps to give risotto a more balanced nutritional profile.
    try cooking it a bit longer before adding the liquid. This helps get the rice cooking earlier and helps it absorb enough liquid. Also note that risotto is supposed to keep a bit of an "al dente" feel to it. If you cook it to mush, it's overdone.
