- 1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms*
- 1 1/2 cups arborio rice or medium-grain white rice (about 9 1/2 ounces)
- 3 large shallots, chopped
- 2 cups (or more) low-salt chicken broth
- 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (about 3 ounces)
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Bring 2 cups water to boil in heavy small saucepan. Add mushrooms. Cover; let stand until mushrooms soften, about 10 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer mushrooms to work surface; reserve soaking liquid. Chop mushrooms coarsely.
Melt butter with oil in pressure cooker over medium-high heat. Add rice, shallots, and fennel seeds; stir 1 minute. Add wine and cook until almost evaporated, stirring frequently, about 1 minute. Mix in 2 cups broth and salt, then mushrooms and reserved mushroom soaking liquid, leaving any sediment behind in pan. Lock lid in place. Bring to high pressure over high heat. Cook rice 4 minutes, adjusting heat as necessary to maintain high pressure. Quick-release pressure.
Slowly release lid, standing back and allowing steam to escape. Cook rice over medium-high heat until creamy and tender but still firm to bite, stirring often and adding more broth by 1/4 cupfuls if thinner consistency is desired, about 2 minutes. Mix in cheese and parsley. Season risotto to taste with pepper.
