Originating in Spain, specifically in the region of Valencia, paella is a rice dish that is typically cooked over an open fire in a wide and shallow pan. While you don’t need an open flame to cook a perfectly delicious paella at home, but choosing the right type of rice is a must for the perfect texture and flavor. Carolina® Parboiled Rice is specifically designed for paella recipes because the grains remain compact when cooked and absorb all of the flavors in your dish.
