Valencian Short Grain Rice verses Brown ?

@ Jade Turner,

I am writing to thank you for re-sending the recipe however, if you kindly re-read my note, I had just asked for confirmation on 2 questions:

a) Mexican cheese used in recipe ? Oaxaca ? Cotija ? Or a mix ?

b) Due to fact, I live in the Mediterranean, and brown rice is not so easy to find for starters, and personally:

I prefer Short Grain or Long Grain Valencian or Italian Arborio which is used to make risotto ---

Which rice best substitutes the brown ?

Thanks

Margaux.

I don't think these folks were replying to you directly, but to the thread in general. Just like I did above, Jadeturners used the "Quote" feature in their reply and wasn't necessarily reposting the recipe.

In answer to your questions, I always use long grain rice in MY Spanish rice dishes, Queso fresco for the cheese if I am using Mexican cheese, spouse does not like cotija, otherwise I use shredded cheddar.
