Risotto Balls With Pizza Sauce - Recipe In Hindi

Risotto is a traditional continental preparation of rice and cheese. It is a soft dish, somewhat similar to our comforting khichdi. In this more exotic form, a mixture of rice, cheese, herbs and capsicum is rounded into balls, dipped in a flour batter and deep-fried into delicious Risotto Balls, which are crisp outside and delightfully gooey inside. Served with tangy and flavourful pizza sauce, this is a perfect starter for an Italian style meal.
