  4. After a minute, pour white dry wine preliminary mixed with tomato paste into the pan. This will give the risotto a beautiful color. The temperature can be slightly increased until the wine has evaporated. Rice must be stirred all the time so that it does not burn. Once the wine has evaporated, reduce the cooking temperature and add 1 cup of boiling water. Continue to stir so that rice doesn't stick. When the water evaporates, add another glass of boiling water. And so several times, until the whole liter of boiled water is used.
