Santo Tomas Bomba Rice D.O in Textile Bag - Small
Cloth bag contains 1/2 kilo or 1 pound of bomba rice. That's equivalent to 2 1/4 cups, enough for 4 to 6 servings (depending on appetite). This is the most sought after rice for making authentic Spanish paella. It's a shorter grain rice, and though it resembles Italian arborio in shape, it behaves much differently. It can absorb 3 times its volume in liquid yet still retain its toothy texture. When using Bomba, you'll need 3 cups of liquid for each 1 cup of rice. Bomba does cost more than other rice, but if you want to make paella the Spanish way, this is the way to go.
