Bomba rice (Oryza sativa L.) is the most recognised and sought after variety of paella rice in the world, and Calasparra is the most famous rice growing region of Spain.  This bomba rice of Calasparra is produced by the Cooperativa del Campo in Spain, and available for you to buy now on Saffrondust. 

This paella rice offer is our most popular and includes 2 x 1kg cloth bags of Bomba rice of Calasparra totaling 2 kilograms and includes free shipping anywhere in Australia.  

Generally available only in specialist delicatessens and grocers, it is almost impossible to buy authentic bomba rice in Woolworths or Coles.  

Characterised by low yields and resource intensive cultivation, bomba rice has a long maturation resulting in a highly dehydrated grain.  

Your friends and family will be amazed at how well you have recreated the authentic taste of the perfect paella.

Its high cost of production and limited supply means the bomba strain of rice commands a premium over other rice varieties, and bomba has unique properties that make it perfect for paella and many other types of cooking.

  • Bomba rice expands horizontally not lengthways
  • Bomba rice is less starchy than arborio, resulting in grain separation which means it doesn't become sticky or creamy when cooking
  • Bomba's high amylose content prevents it sticking to cookware
  • Bomba rice absorbs up to 3 times its own weight in broth (compared to other varieties of rice which absorb around 2x)

 

Short grain rice has less of a rice flavour compared to long grain rice (eg Basmati), but instead absorbs all the wonderful flavours from the recipe when cooking, making it a great rice for stock absorbtion and perfect for cooking paella. 

Your rule of thumb when cooking paella is 100g of rice per person, and with bomba rice allow 3 ladles of liquid for every ladle of rice.  Whilst bomba is a premium rice, this 2kg bomba rice of Calasparra offer will deliver 20 serves to your family and friends, resulting in a cost per serve just over $2.00.  

 

Bomba paella rice of Calasparra is free delivery to Australian addresses, but does not ship overseas.
