WATCH: This Is How You Can Make A Local + Easy Paella

This is our version of the Spanish paella.

This Christmas, make bringhe, or the Filipino paella. It's a dish we transformed from a Spanish paella recipe but using ingredients that anyone can more easily get.

This easy paella version uses ingredients you can get at any supermarket or palengke.

It uses luyang dilaw, or fresh turmeric, to mimic the color of expensive saffron. It also uses malagkit instead of the shorter-grained varieties used in the traditional paella. All these changes are meant to make this dish more easily accessible to us and the result is a delicious rice dish we should be making and serving at our fiestas and big celebrations like for Noche Buena. 

If you're going to try it, here's the bringhe recipe:
