Help needed - Scaling up recipe for Risotto

masha | Mar 19, 2011 11:08 AM

I have a recipe for Risotto that I ordinarily make with 1 cup of rice, 1 cup of dry wine, and about 36-40 oz of broth. I'd like to increase the recipe by 1.5 -- i.e., using 1-1/2 cups of rice.

I assume that I should proportionately increase the liquid to 1-1/2 cups of wine and 54-60 oz of broth. Agreed?

Also, the recipe calls for adding the broth in 1 cup increments, until complete absorbed, and then adding another cup. With the increased amount of rice, should I add broth in 1-1/2 cup increments, or stick with the 1 cup increments, and add more frequently?

Plan on serving it to dinner guests tonight so I'd appreciate any advice this afternoon.
