    1. Hi Paul
      The alternative would be to make this is a pan as a traditional risotto, adding the stock a ladleful at a time.
      You’d need to do step 1 and 2, then add the stock and vinegar a little at a time, then add the remaining ingredients.

    1. Hi Brenda
      Pecorino is a hard cheese, similar to parmesan, but a much nicer flavour in our opinion! (It’s also been added to the HEA list.) Henderson’s Relish is a condiment, a sort of vegetarian Worcestershire sauce, locally brewed in Sheffield but available from the Henderson’s website. http://hendersonsrelish.com/

  1. Hi! Loving the new Actifry recipes 😊 I have the original/old Actifry, not the express one. How long would I need to leave the timings? Thank you x

    1. Hi Sarah
      I don’t have an older model to compare against the express model, so I can’t advise on how the timings might differ. So sorry.

  2. This recipe is fantastic! and will become firm fav!! No standing around, and now have made this and the Firecracker Chicken in my Actifry and both were brilliant. More recipes for the Actifry please!! Maybe there are more but I could not find them?????
    Big thanks to Nom Nom Nom!

    1. Hi Anne
      It can be made on the hob, but you will need to add the stock more gradually, waiting for each additional amount to be absorbed before adding more. It’s a slower, more time-consuming way to make it, but it’s still worth it as it’s super tasty! 🙂

  3. Is there something I can replace the henderson’s relish with? I’ve looked and can’t find it in any location shops & im veggie so can’t have Worcester. Thanks!

  4. our actifrys dont have a paddle they just blow the hot air onto the food. can u suggest some receipes for this type of actifry?

    Thanks

  5. Made this the other evening and loved it. So easy to make in the Actifry. After I dished up I added some roasted chicken breast on the top. Was enough for my hubby and I and a portion for the freezer. Would definitely recommend.

    1. Thanks for getting in touch, Angie! Would you mind giving it a star rating too? (You can do this at the top of the recipe card, just click on the number of stars you’d like to award!) We’d really appreciate it, thank you!

  6. Hi, I tried this recipe in my actifry express xl but the rice didn’t cook – I followed the recipe exactly but ended up having to finish it in the hob! Any ideas where I went wrong? It was delicious!

    1. Hi Davina
      I’m at a bit of a loss as to why the rice wasn’t fully cooked, assuming that you used Arborio rice, the full 1.4 litres of stock and cooked for the suggested timings. Glad you enjoyed it, though!

  7. I was thinking of adding bacon to this, at what stage would I add this? I’m thinking for the last ten minutes or so? Thank you.

  8. I found this too vinegar-y too, spoiled it for me. Also can you confirm is this for 2 people or 4?
    It seems like a lot for 2.
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Cat
      Apologies – the amount of vinegar has been mistyped. I’ve now amended the recipe, hope that helps. 🙂
      The quantities given are for 2 portions as a main meal.

  9. Hi

    would you have instructions please how to cook this in a slow cooker please as i don’t have actifry only,

    Thanks

    Niki

    1. Hi Niki
      The alternative would be to make this in a pan as a traditional risotto, adding the stock a ladleful at a time.
      You’d need to do step 1 and 2, then add the stock and vinegar a little at a time, then add the remaining ingredients.Keep stirring until all liquid is absorbed and the rice is al dente. You should have a creamy consistency by the end of cooking. 🙂

  10. hi jane

    Thanks for replying,may seem like a silly question but would i cook my rice first before adding,I’m a newby first week following plan and new too this cooking😁 thanks again

    1. Hi Marie
      We were asked to create this recipe by Tefal for their new Actifry Express XL. (The recipe states that it is a sponsored post.) It’s worth just checking that your actifry has the capacity for the amount of liquid in this recipe. 🙂

  11. Does this definitely only serve 2? I’ve just made it and it made 3 very generous portions, could easily serve 4 as 75g is the recommended individual portion of rice?
    Delicious recipe though!

  12. Yummy! I missed out the vinegar by accident but it doesn’t seem to have spoilt the dish, it’s delicious! I needed a bit more liquid than stated but it came out brilliant. Thanks for a lovely recipe 🙂 xx

  13. Hi

    Is it at all possible to make this without an Actifry?

    I bought all the ingredients not realising I needed an Actifry :-/

    1. Hi Clair
      It can be made on the hob, but you will need to add the stock more gradually, waiting for each additional amount to be absorbed before adding more. It’s a slower, more time-consuming way to make it, but it’s still worth it as it’s super tasty! 🙂

  14. Thank you Janie. Just about finished making it now. Looking forward to it. Had a sneaky taste and I definitely think it’s a winner!

  15. Fantastic recipe. I made this on the stove, adding a few ladles of veg stock at a time. The recipe definitely makes more than two portions!

    1. Hi Fiona
      I made it the same way as I don’t have an Actifry. Love a good risotto and this one is fab. 🙂 So glad you enjoyed it!
