Risotto Fennel and Lemonyby Cook Gourmet

Rs. 498 Serves 2

Fennel is a versatile vegetable that plays an important role in food cultures of many european nations, especially in France and Italy. Its esteemed reputation dates back to the earliest times and is reflected in mythological traditions. Greek myths state that fennel was not only closely associated with Dionysus, the Geek god of food and wine, but that fennel stalk carried the coal that passed down knowledge from gods to men. We have designed a combination of Fennel and Lemon touch risotto
