    Spicy Paella Fried Rice

    Spicy Paella Fried Rice

    1/4 cup olive oil
    1 tbl. cumin seeds
    1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
    1 large red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    1 large onion, chopped
    3 links (or 100 gr.) chorizo, cut in small pieces
    4 cups cold, cooked rice
    1 bag (300 gr.) frozen green peas
    1/2 cup hulled, toasted pumpkin seeds
    1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped


    Heat oil over moderate heat. Add cumin and red pepper, stir one minute. Add onion and red pepper, cook about 5 minutes. Add chorizo and brown about 3 minutes. Add crumbled rice, stirring about 3 minutes. Stir in peas and cook until just heated.
    Remove from heat and stir in pumpkin seeds and cilantro.

    This recipe sounds crazy but tastes quite good. All the ingredients are easy to find in farang supermarkets.

    ^THAT looks great. I want dinner at your house.

    Sorry guys, mine is not so fancy. I did try saffron in it but couldn't tell much difference in the taste. Saffron is too expensive to waste on anything but real paella.

    Just started doing paella myself. Instead of saffron or conventional stock we use Italian pesto sauce , and plenty of it . The result is colourful and very tasty. If you look at Youtube recipes, you'll notice that no 2 people have the same recipe.
    Its one of those dishes where you have a lot of options for creative experiments.

    It's not my photo, but it looks so great I thought it would be a nice touch of colors in the thread.
