    I have made this a couple of times now (i found it really hard to find a tomato based Themi risotto). i ended up having to add more water as the 350mls wasnt enough to complete the cooking, from memory i added 700mls in total. i also increased the cooking time to 18mins. thank you for posting, will be adding it to our dinner rotation tmrc_emoticons.)
