3. Add more oil to the skillet if need, and cook the onion and pepper until onions are translucid.

4. Add the pepper paste, tomatoes, paprika and a bit more salt and pepper. Cook for 2 more minutes.

5. Add the wine and cook until alcohol evaporates.

6. Add the rice and cook until the rims are translucid.
