Bomba Valencia Rice
Bomba is a short grain rice that absorbs three times its volume in broth (rather than traditional two) for wonderful taste and firm consistency when used in traditional paella. We source absorbent grains of authentic bomba rice from Spain for our Bomba Valencia Rice.
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in heavy pan over medium heat. Add 1 cup Bomba Valencia Rice and stir 2 minutes. Add 3 cups water or stock. Bring to a boil, stirring once. Reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, until thin crust forms on bottom, about 18 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 10 minutes before serving.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.
This classic rendition of seafood paella features Calasparra Rice, the most popular rice used for the traditional Spanish dish. While Bomba RIce and even Arborio RIce can be used this recipe utilizes authentic ingredients and procedures.
