Paella recipe, by Alejandro Suárez 2ºI-NI

How to make paella?

Before starting, you have to know that paella is a typical Spanish dish from Valencia, a Spanish autonomous community. The paella is traditionally cooked in a "paellera" - a round flat pan with two handles. There are literally hundreds of ways to cook a paella and every cook has their own favourite recipe. Here’s my favourite one:

-Rice (600g)

-1/2 chicken
-2 artichokes
-2 red peppers

-2 tomatos

-Black pepper

-Clove of garlic

-Olive oil
-1/2 lemon


Part 1: First of all, you have to fry the chicken with olive oil. After this, boil the chicken with 8 glasses of water. You have to boil the chicken for about ½ hour.

Part 2: Fry lightly the artichokes and the pepper and put them separately. Then, fry lightly the tomatoes and the garlic.

Part 3: After this, put the rice in with the garlic and the tomatoes.

Part 4: After boiling the chicken, add it in the frying pan with the tomatoes, the rice and the garlic (you have to do it when you are frying lightly, not after this). Then, add the others things (the artichokes, the pepper, the lemon juice, the black pepper, the salt and the saffron).

Part 5: Cook it for 20 minutes. Afterwards, let it stand for 5 minutes. Then, it is ready to eat.
