A delicious mixed vegetable Paella which is a perfect one pot meal! Done in the microwave in minutes, this is your go-to recipe when you are in a lookout for something easy and exotic!
Vegetable Paella is rice based dish with its origins in Spain specifically Valencia. Its made out of a special short and roundish rice in a flat pan and Paella means exactly that pan rice.
The dish has a lovely olive oil flavour. I had first eaten it in a Spanish food festival that I attended somewhere. A seafood and a veg paella both were served and I fell in love with both. So I scooted around the net for the recipe and started my own attempt of making it. But what I couldn’t find is the paella rice here. I went ahead and used the normal sona masuri rice, though on second thoughts, I think the Kerala red rice would be good for this too.
This is a very simple recipe and I made it entirely in the microwave. It is so easy to put together and the flavors really are great with the vegetables and the rice. I loved the concept of just adding whatever vegetables you have at home.
To be honest, I think this is a great recipe if you have unexpected guests or on the days when you don’t feel like cooking anything elaborate. Pair it up with some salsa or papads or even a raita, and I am sure it will be a hit!
Spanish food is pretty flavorful. It has spices and loads of vegetables, meat and seafood in it. Of course, churros from Spain are pretty famous globally, but even the savory Spanish food is pretty awesome.
So if you are looking for a flavorful Spanish dish, this is it!
