Recipe by Lokicat
I was sitting here looking at the other paella receipies and bumming out because I had no saffron and no money. THEN I realized I had Indian Saffron rice and then I was in business! This also borrows heavily from my experience in the Reynosa region of Mexico where they can make some fire!
