Paella rice


2 cups rice
3 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup onions
1 tsp garlic
2 bay leaves
1 tsp mixed herbs or dill
1 tbsp curry leaves optional
1/2 cup tomatoes
1/4 cup bell peppers
1/4 cup carrots
1/2 cup shrimp
1/2 cup squid
1/2 cup chicken
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp pepper or chillie powder or paprika
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cumin ground optional
2 soup cubes or stock
1/4 tsp saffron
water
2 tbsp parsley

Wash and soak the rice for 15 minutes. Season the chicken and seafood separately with salt, pepper or chilli powder and turmeric leave aside for 15 minutes. Mix the saffron with a little hot water and leave aside.
Heat oil fry the chicken then the shrimp and squid till golden brown, remove and leave aside. Add oil if needed and saute onions, garlic, herbs, vegetables and rice for a few minutes. Add tomatoes and slightly fried meat and seafood, soup cubes and all the spices with the water about 1" above the rice cover and cook on low heat for 20 minutes. Don't mix the rice when it is cooking. Garnish with parsley and lemon wedges.
I use maggie soup cubes. Can add other vegetables like peas, seafood and sausages cut into small pieces as well. Add a little more saffron if it isn't yellow the rice as to be yellow.
