Aroz Valenciana Recipe

Aroz ala Valenciana is flavorful dish influenced by Spain to Filipino culture. The glutionous rice (malagkit) is cooked with coco milk, turmeric and seasonings. Meats like chicken and chorizo werre added. Raisins, bell pepper and green peas are added too. It is topped with sliced boiled egg for garnishing. This is commonly served on special occasions like fiesta or holiday. My simple version is perfect for everyday meal.
