Indian Inspired Risotto

Indian Risotto
What to make for dinner?  Tonight using some common ingredients that I had on hand gave me the idea of making this risotto with some of my favorite Indian flavors. I used lots of vegetables, chick peas, curry paste and a very spicy pickled chili. To start, I made a standard risotto adding the curry paste to the rice during the first stages of the cooking process, then the vegetables with vegetable stock.
I added a small handful of fresh spinach and peas at the end so they remained bright green and not over-cooked.  A small spoonful of chili pickle at the end gave it another flavor boost.
Good stuff, but be careful with that pickle- it's hot!
