Just taking advantage of Spain being the Champion 2010. With me are my classmates in Master of International Human Resources, Melinda (Romania) and Sophia (Taiwan). We had a blast walking around Madrid eventhough we're sweating. When we were in Madrid, we didn't explore much of the food, mostly we ate burgers and sandwiches. But definitely, I didn't leave unless I tried the famous and authentic taste of Paella.
Our first meal (brunch) upon arrival
with all those photos... i love churos the most
Ham store is all over the place...
Of course, Paellla... I didn't eat all those, just half :)
For my share recipe, here's a simple way to make
5-6 cups of rice, cooked in tahong (mussel) broth
1 cup tahong (mussel), boiled
1/4 kilo prawns, boiled
1 chorizo de Bilbao (Spanish Sausage), sliced
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 medum-sized can of tomato sauce
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 green pepper, sliced
1 bay leaf
1/4 teaspoon paprika
a pinch saffron
salt and pepper to taste
oil for sauteing
Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Saute onion, garlic, and chorizo. Add tomato sauce, green pepper, bay leaf, and saffron. Simmer for few minutes. Add cooked rice, continually stirring for 10-15 minutes. Add tahong (mussel) and prawns. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well.
Happy Weekend! Here's a treat...
