Stir in stock; cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 20 minutes or until rice is just tender and liquid is absorbed. Stir in cheese; press risotto into prepared pan. Cover; refrigerate 3 hours or overnight.
5.Cut prepared risotto into four squares; cut each square into four triangles. Coat triangles in flour; shake off excess. Heat remaining oil in large saucepan; cook risotto triangles, in batches, until browned both sides and heated through. Drain on absorbent paper.
