Why it’s important to use Spanish rice to make paella.

Since rice is the bedrock of Paella, it is advantageous to use a proper rice. This has been used for paellas for centuries — producing individual al dente grains, swollen with as much good broth as possible.

The problem you run into with substitutes is that the other short-grained strains of rice are designed with other applications in mind:

  • Arborio is meant to become creamy when cooked. 
  • Asian rice is meant to be sticky.
  • Basmati is light, aromatic and fragile.
  • Long grain rice (such as Uncle Ben’s) is a completely different product with lower absorbency.

Every rice has a determinate characteristics and, short grain rice as La Fallera is the best option to make your paellas authentically Spanish.
