Porcini Mushrooms Brown Rice Risotto Recipe with Crispy Smoked Chicken Breast

Porcini mushrooms risotto is one of my favourite Italian rice-based dish since it got a earthy porcini fragrance.  Porcini mushrooms or Boletus edulis, commonly known as penny bun or cepes. Considered as a pricey gourmet mushrooms in many western cuisines, and is commonly prepared and eaten in soups, pasta, or risotto. Porcini mushrooms most often dried, packaged and distributed worldwide. Drying keeping its flavour and it is then reconstituted by soaking in water and used in cooking. Porcini mushrooms got  meaty texture, with a smooth and creamy nutty flavour, and also earthy pleasant aroma.

Dried Porcini Mushrooms for Risotto

I purchased  a couple pack of  Borde Cepes-Extra Porcini Mushrooms or dried porcini/cepes mushrooms in Grand Lucky Supermarket, Jakarta,  for about 5 USD for tiny 28 gr package. Pretty pricey, but i guess it’s worht for the price, besides, it’s not easy to find a gourmet mushrooms in Indonesia, even in Jakarta. I guess this is away cheaper than porcini mushrooms that i’m use fo making Smoked Lamb Chop with PORCINI Mushrooms Crusted, Saffron Polenta and Chicken Ballotine Recipe with Spinach, Minced Chicken and Porcini Mushrooms Powder Stuffing that i’m brought from Ebay.

Brown Rice Risotto Recipe with Porcini Mushrooms and Smoked Chicken Breast

Brown Rice, Beras Coklat

I’m using short grain brown rise because i’m concern about my weight lately. Brown rice is got it’s outer hull removed, but the underlying bran and germ layers are left on the grain. This made brown rice is more nutritious than white rice because the bran contains vitamins, minerals and oils. It also has more fiber than white rice.  The glycemic index of brown rice slightly lowerthen white rice, but since the brown rice got additional fiber and nutrients contains, you may eat less and your stomach is fullfilled longer within and thus have a lower glycemic load from brown rice. Brown rice more expensive than common white rice, partly due to its relatively low supply and difficulty of storage and transport. Brown rice should be placed in dark, airthight and cold place because it can easily oxidized and ruined in a room temperature, that’s why you should refrigerate it in a tupperware or another airthight box if you lived in tropical country like Indonesia.

Porcini Mushrooms Risotto with Brown Rice and Crispy Smoked Chicken Breast

For the crispy smoked chicken breast topping, i made it from scratch. The recipe and process similiar to my Homemade Smoked Beef and Tea Smoked Salmon. The chicken breast is cured with salt and spices for about 3 days and then smoked in a wok with a mixture of rice, tea and some wood chips as a smoke agent. Right after the smoking process was completed, i sliced it thinly and sprayed it with some EVOO and let it oven baked in 180°C for about 10 minutes until crispy.

Radicchio Risotto with Grilled Mantis Shrimp (Canocchie)

The bitter edge of radicchio is cooked off a bit in this risotto, but the primary flavor does involve the sophisticated slightly bitter flavor one expects in chicories, endives, and radicchio. The like to add some Danish blue cheese to  the because the creamy and cheesey taste milder the bitter flavour. AYou can use any of theese for this recipe, and don’t forget to double the amount to get the same effect as the blue cheese. For making the quick and easy radicchio risotto, you should use arborio rice or any short grain rice because it cooked faster than medium or long grain rice. This is needed because you don’t wanna overcooked the radicchio.

For the protein, i’m using mantis shrimp or mantis prawn or Canocchie in Italian. I’ve ever made Deep Fried Mantis Shrimp with Salt and Pepper Crispy Butter Cereal or Oatmeal and Stir Fry Mantis Shrimp with Black Pepper Sauce Recipe, i’m better be using another ccoking technique for it with is simple grilling. The grilled mantis shrimp is marinated with salt and peper then drenched with some lime juice and olive oil. Instead of throwing away, the rest of the mantis shrimp shell and  head i use for cooking the risotto, it’s made the risotto taste even better. Usually the mantis shrimp head and the head is add  to the broth that using for making the risotto, but i’m not that kind of patient to reduce the broth for infused the mantis shrimp flavour.
