Method :
Clean inside the quails by wiping them with kitchen paper, then rub them inside and outside with salt and lemon juice. Set the quails aside while you prepare the other ingredients. Preheat the oven to 160ºC (320ºF) . Heat the oil in a casserole with a lid, and brown the quails for 2-3 minutes. Add the shallots, garlic, mushrooms and fennel seeds. Stir them around while, at the same time, turning the quails around. Add the oregano or marjoram, paprika, wine and some salt and pepper. Stir, and cover the casserole. Simmer for 5 minutes. Uncover, and add the rice, stirring everything round in the casserole while you heat the stock in another saucepan. When the stock is hot, pour it into the casserole. Bring it to the boil. Adjust the seasoning and cover the casserole. Put it in the preheated oven and leave it there for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Serve piping hot with lots of salad.
