I made this tonight, so yummy! great recipe!

jajajajaa! YES !
All the guiris (that's the name we gave to all foreigners who visit spain) says this wen asking for paella, and english ones says "One cabeza" (wich means "one head" when asking for cerveza!

And onyon is neither an ingredient of the paella!
But that is the greatness of paella. You can do it like you want!

Nooooo, has usado chorizo, nooooo. El chorizo NUNCA va en la paella valenciana.
Deberías haber dejado un poco de agua en la paella (el nombre real de la cacerola y de donde viene el nombre del plato) y esperar 5 minutos. El arroz tomará el sabor del caldo.

You used chorizo! Chorizo is NEVER an ingredient of the valencia's paella.

You should leave a bit of water in the paella (the real name of the pan is paella and this recipe takes the name from there) and wait 5 minutes. The rice will take all the flavour of the other ingradients.

I think i added too much saffron, i can taste it in the rice... what is paella suppose to taste like? i think i need 2 chicken buillon packages the next time,

Do you know how much saffron you added? I would only reccomend a few pinches.

Thanks

Excelente paella Tío... I make my paella valenciana from scratch, and instead of cooking the rice in water, i use a combination of fresh seafood broth and beer. Once you start cooking the alcohol is gone and you get the nice malt flavor.

I would like to say that this recipe of paella is the one from valencia, in ibiza instead of peas we add something called "picadillo" and which is made by mixing garlic,parsley, kidney,and nyora(a kind of pepper) and chopping it, we also use fish broth to cook it

My mother spent a week going back to a restaurant in NYC to figure out how they made their paella (they wouldn't give her instructions) and made it perfectly for us. She would have loved Instructables, as she handed out recipes for everything she figured out how to make. Her recipe was just like yours and delicious, only she added tomatoes and other veggies. Thanks to you and all the people who have given us wonderful things to cook! I wish mom was still with us.
