Note

Paella is the Spanish dish of saffron-flavored rice typically combined with a variety of meats, seafood and vegetables traditionally served in a wide, shallow dish. Since saffron is expensive, turmeric is sometimes given as an alternative. While the finished dish looks similar, the flavor is different.
