Today we will make a simple and easy way of cooking arroz Valenciana, and I hope that you will try this dish from my kitchen. :-). I like a Valenciana that is not too sticky that's why I combined the white rice and glutinous rice I designed this recipe specially to those who are just beginning to cook, I will make a very special one soon, God willing. Enjoy cooking.
Ingredients for 6 servings
2 cups cooked glutinous rice ( malagkit)
2 cups cooked white rice ( the normal rice that we eat during meals)
