Re: Paella Rice

I know I will get scoffed at for this, but the best rice to cook a paella at home is a parboiled type. Uncle Ben's twenty minute rice will work best. (try it before you berate me) Just make sure you have a good broth to boil the rice and goodies in.

With parboiled rice you are cooking rice with seafood or chicken or whatever you mix with the rice but NEVER a paella.

Re: Paella Rice

For those reading this later like myself...
I found bomba rice (paella rice) straight from Valencia, Spain at Globus in Lausanne!

Paella should be much drier than Risotto.

Try to resist stirring it as much as possible as this releases starch from the rice which mixes with the liquid to make the slop. Instead, Let the liquid evaporate (hence the large diameter pan).
true that. Stirring is definitely a no go. And don't worry even if the rice scorches a little. It happens in the restaurants even, which is why you shouldn't scrape the rice that's stuck to the bottom of the pan.

Anway, you don't need to eat the black bits, even if they land on your plate.

I've got Spanish friends here who refuse to make Paella here as they can't get their really big paella pan on the hob!

In the grill store (selzam in Winterthur), i saw a huge paella pan and a gas element - gas burner on 4 legs. Not sure if they still carry them.
