Bomba Rice


For the very best authentic tasting Paella use Spanish Passion Bomba Rice. Known as the “King of Paella Rices” Bomba rice absorbs up to 3 times its own volume of liquid and thus is able to absorb even more of the flavours and aromas of your Paella stock, resulting a wonderful authentic tasting Paella dish.

Presented in a traditional cloth sack, 1kg of Spanish Passion Bomba rice is enough to make about 10 good sized portions of Paella.

Chef’s Tip: When cooking, listen out for the ‘Socarrat’! This is the caramelisation process that forms a crust on the bottom of the rice and sticks to the bottom of the pan….. it produces a wonderful authentic flavour. Keep an eye on the paella throughout the cooking process  – if the bottom feels crunchy and hard, the soccarat is ready….. don’t let it burn!

About This Rice

Bomba rice (Spanish: arroz bomba; Catalan: arròs bomba) is a short-grain variety of rice, mainly cultivated in the eastern regions of Spain. It is mostly used in paella and other dishes in Valencian cuisine, and is sometimes referred to as Valencia rice.

Known for its non-stick properties due to its high amylose content. It is a pearly white colour and a uniform consistency. One important property of bomba is its ability to absorb two or three times its volume in water without bursting and the grains of rice tend to hold their structure well after cooking. The grains expand in width like an accordion to form little “bombs” hence the name “Bomba”!

It is thought to have originated from an Indian variety which was brought to the Iberian Peninsula via the Middle East.
