Carnaroli rice

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Carnaroli rice, an Italian variety, has short, plump grains that, like those of Arborio rice, are high in starch content and, when cooked, have a creamy, saucelike consistency. Frequently used in risotto dishes, it is available in Italian delicatessens and well-stocked food stores.

For other rice varieties, see Arborio, basmati, brown, glutinous, Vialone Nano, white, and wild rice.
