The amount of stock is usually three times the amount of rice but depending on the size of the pan or type of rice, these percentages may vary. To insure optimum results it is advisable to keep some warm stock apart and add it only if necessary.

Socarrat: This word refers to the thin layer of rice that being in contact with the bottom of the paella staying burns a little crunchy. Valencia appreciate socarrat, but getting the socarrat and not end up burning the paella is a sign of your expertise.
