Even though this isn't a true paella, for those of us who don't actually like anything too fishy it's perfect. I ended up adding red pepper and cooked chicken, I cooked it all in stir fry oil rather than vegetable oil and when I cooked the rice I added a chicken stock cube to the water. The whole meal was incredibly flavourful, especially with the chorizo sausage (which needs to be chopped up pretty small), and I will definitely be cooking it again.

Before making this I read the comments from people complaining how bland it was. Add a full tsp of Turmeric, some chilli flakes and add a lot of Chorizo and it's fine. It's also quite a light meal which means it should be good when it gets warmer over here. The best fake paella disk I've cooked on here so far.
