Spanish Paella

I found this extremely delicious dish in a magazine. Now the only problem is to pester someone to cook it and satisfy my tastebuds. If you know of some restaurant in Kolkata serving the dish. Well you know what to do... let me know. Here is the recipie. Try it, and if you like it let me know.

  • 4 cups rice
  • 8 cups fish stock
  • 8 king size prawns
  • 200 gm shrimps
  • 200 gm peas (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 ripe tomatoes, skinned and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • Olive oil
  • Salt, pepper and saffron to taste
Heate oil in a pan and saute the garlic. Add tomatoes, peas, shrimp and saffron. Cook for a few minutes. Add rice, stir well and then add the fish stock. Cook on slow for about 20 minutes. Add the remaining seafood a few minutes before the rice is cooked. Cover Paella with a lid to poach the seafood. If you wish you could also cook the seafood before and then add them. Add garlic, salt and pepper to taste and simmer for about 5 mins.
