Chef s Tip

For a vegetarian risotto, replace chicken with more mushrooms and use light soya sauce instead of fish sauce for seasoning. Feel free to upgrde this recipe by adding some seasonal vegetables : green asparagus or peas, that you can simply blanched and stir into the preparation just before serving.
