Can I sneak in a question without starting a new thread?

Do I need to have Arborio rice for risotto, or can I use the rice I have on hand, which is basmati?

You can, but it will not have the creaminess that most want.

If you were to use a long-grain rice in lieu of the arborio rice, you would get something closer to Rice-a-Roni in texture than risotto. I have tried it. On the other hand, long-grain rice will cook a lot faster. It is a different product.

Jasmine rice mostly. Wen don't eat rice allot maybe 2 times a month. I switched from white rice to Jasmine about 4 years ago. I like it better.

Right now I have long and short grain white. I usually have brown, jasmine, or a wild rice mix, too, but I don't cook with rice often. I'll buy those when I need them.

Only brown rice, either long grain or basmati. Anything white just lacks the fibre and my body tells me the next Day.
