Wikipedia: Risotto
Risotto (/rɪˈzɒtoʊ/, Italian: [riˈzɔtto], from riso meaning “rice") is a northern Italian rice dish cooked with broth until it reaches a creamy consistency. The broth can be derived from meat, fish, or vegetables. Many types of risotto contain butter, onion, white wine, and parmesan cheese. It is one of the most common ways of cooking rice in Italy. Saffron was originally used for flavour and its signature yellow colour.

Wikipedia: Porridge
Porridge (historically also spelled porage, porrige, or parritch) is a food commonly eaten as a breakfast cereal dish, made by boiling ground, crushed or chopped starchy plants—typically grain—in water or milk. It is often cooked or served with added flavourings such as sugar, honey, (dried) fruit or syrup to make a sweet cereal, or it can be mixed with spices, meat or vegetables to make a savoury dish. It is usually served hot in a bowl, depending on its consistency. Oat porridge, or oatmeal, is one of the most common types of porridge. Gruel is a thinner version of porridge.

Yes risotto is like Porridge, so I should like it. But I find it mushy & tasteless @gary__robinson with squash and asparagus. That bit nice.

Risotto is basically porridge
Or porridge is oatto?? Idk which one contains the other actually. My point is that porridge is basically a solid carbohydrate mixed with liquid in high temperature until it they release enough starch to become creamy. Risotto just uses rice.
