Rice dishes can be prepared with variety of ingredients such as seafood, vegetables, different kind of meat, and a lot of flavors.
Paella has known as a typical dish from Valencia, and different stories and myths are behind this traditional food. Paella takes its name from a special wide, shallow pan used to cook the dish. Farmers and fishermen cooked it over an open fire. But, should you not possess Paella pan, you can use a large sturdy skillet one instead.
This recipe is going to explain a rice dish, which is basically a paella. But it has known as” un arroz” in other regions of Spain like Madrid, Seville and Cantabria. Since Spanish used to eat rice on Sundays, we call this meal as Spanish Sunday Rice.
