In my most recent blog post on cooking paella I talked about using a different method that I had seen on the television. I did manage to try it out and, yes it did work exactly as planned.
I cooked the vegetables first and then added the rice and the stock, stirred once and then left it.
I was concerned about how it would turn out and was so, oh so tempted to give it a stir now and again… but I didn’t.
So what of the result?
Well the paella was a lot dryer than my usual recipe and I did feel it lacked some flavour compared to previous versions I had cooked. I am guessing though it was more “authentic” and how a paella should be. One of these days I will need to get to Spain and have a proper paella to compare.
