Food Friday: Paella

Nothing beats a steaming, home-cooked paella!

Paella is a typical Valencian rice dish from Spain. The origin of the name paella is in the Valencian for frying pan. This word in turn derives from Latin patella and is akin to French poĂȘle, Italian padella, Old Spanish padilla and New Mexican Spanish puela.

Paella is usually garnished with vegetables and meat or seafood. The three key ingredients are rice, saffron, and olive oil. (wikipedia)

Happy weekend to all!

Love this dish. Same with Maiylah, my father cooks this and he calles it Arroz a la Valenciana.

Happy Friday.

i have always wanted to try it actually, but i have never had a true opportunity to.

Other than microwave meals, which i think would prob taste rubbish cause they usually do!

have great weekend x
