(Traditionally prepared risotto requires constant stirring to avoid scorching the rice and cooking it too quickly.) The combination of the Sauté and Pressure Cooker settings results in what you'd expect in a perfectly prepared risotto—one with subtle nutty aromatics and a satisfying creamy consistency. Just as with the classic preparation, you can serve Instant pot risotto plain or with fresh herbs, meaty mushrooms, colorful vegetables, and fragrant spices.
