Rice and Ingredients for Paella

Paella is a dish originally from Valencia (Spain). Its main ingredient is rice, usually accompanied by seafood, chicken, legumes and other foods.

The pan used to prepare paella is known as paellera or even paella. It is a kind of pan with handles.

The Valencian paella would have emerged in the eighteenth century in the area of La Albufera. It is believed that in that rice-growing region a combination of rice with green beans , snails and eel was prepared in a casserole that, over the years, derived in the now traditional paella of Valencia.
