- 4 x 5Kg Round Paella Rice from Navarra
- Excellent holding properties without going mushy
- Very easy to cook with
This is a new rice grown in Navarra in a cooler climate. This strain of rice has a high concentration of "amylose" which is a starch that decreases stickiness and increases the firmness of the rice. This has the effect of making the rice very easy to cook with it also able to be held for a longer time without going mushy. This makes it perfect for caterers at festivals, markets etc.
It is very similar to cook with as the normal Bahia paella rice using just over 2 times the quantity of stock to rice.
The Maratelli Paella Rice comes from the Arrocera del Pirineo cooperative who have been farming rice in Aragon since 1996. They grow their rice at a higher altitude than other parts of Spain, under conditions that are considered extreme for this crop. The fields are irrigated with pure, clean meltwater from the Pyrenees, and the rice is produced in their own mill overseeing the complete production cycle from start to finish, ensuring the finest rice in Aragon.
How much rice do I use per person ?
For a "main course" portion use about 100g of dry rice per person. If it is more of a "tapas" size you need - eg it is part of a larger selection of dishes you are serving, use between 80g-85g of rice per person.
