Place a large frypan or paella pan on a low flame, add a little oil & add onion and garlic and sauté until soft. Add the rice and stir. Add the wine & allow to evaporate, then add the chopped tomatoes, saffron, paprika & season with salt & pepper. Begin adding the stock, allowing to simmer until the stock is absorbed, & continue adding stock until the rice is ¾ cooked. Spoon into individual paella pans & top with chorizo balls. Add the green beans, peas & strips of roasted capsicum, & add a little more hot stock. Bring to simmer, cover & turn off the heat, or place in oven, allowing to rest for a few minutes to absorb all the liquid.
