Easiest ever paella | kukskitchen

Most cuisines have their verison of a rice dish. Biriyani (India), Rissotto (Italy), Fried rice (China), Paella (Spain) and so on. Today I post here one of my favouite recipes from Spain - Paella.  This, I am afraid, is a British-household-mum's take on this Espanol classic. Traditionists might say this is not a typical Paella. Some dont add sea food to paella and chorizo is a no no too. There are several other rice rishes like (arroz con bogavante, arroz a la asturiana, arros brut, arroz al caldero, arroz a la banda...)

A few things before we start:

  • You can add chicken thighs and legs to this to make it a high protein dish.
  • Use paella rice for a creamier taste.
  • Use fresh seafood and peas for a fresher taste.
  • Use lemon wedges and chopped parsley to serve if serving for guests.

An excited mum, a  responsible doctor , a friend's friend , a thankful daughter, a thankful sister and a passionate singer,  an enthusiastic cook, food writer and food photographer . That's me in a nut shell.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
