Vialone Nano rice

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Vialone Nano 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. Used in risotto dishes, it is available in Italian delicatessens and well-stocked food stores.

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