separate fluffy grains
Explanation:
yes, it means fluffy, specifically "separate fluffy grains"

Riso sgranato means that the rice is cooked to the point where the each grain is still separate from the others; cook it longer and they will stick together. Warning, the type of rice used will dictate whether it will produce a fluffy result.
