- this is one of those recipes that turned out even better than I could imagine when coming up with the idea; of course, squash risotto sounds yummy but this is spectacular;
- there are no fancy ingredients or special techniques at work in this recipe but it tastes expensive and luxurious;
- after having the leftovers, I am 100% convinced this would be a perfect entertaining recipe. I will duly report my results if
- I ever have guests over again
- I have friends that would eat pumpkin (Z. is not interested)
- Z. lets me cook for guests. Cooking Indian food for friends is either of his favorite pastimes (he does cook like an Indian grandmother, after all) or is so socially awkward that he feels better having a job to do while hanging out. I think the truth lies somewhere between the two
To make enough soup for my dinner, in a small pan, I just added enough water to 1 cup of risotto to create the consistency I wanted and heated until just simmering. I threw in a couple of handfuls of fresh spinach in at the end and let it wilt simply because I had it and that sounded good. I wonder what other variations are possible? Enjoy!
