Pinoy Arroz Paella
Pinoy Arroz Paella. The main dish of our Noche Buena is paella and it has become a family tradition. I would like to share to every one my version of paella, thru the years I have tried to improve the recipe. I have used only ingredients that are available locally, locally means available even in your local wet market. Cooking procedure is fairly easy an average housewife can easily cook the dish. There are no special cooking procedures. I am now posting the dish in advance and in time for every one to prepare it should you choose to have a paella in your Noche Buena. Here is the recipe. Enjoy.
