INDIAN SAFFRON RICE



Indian Saffron Rice image

Indian saffron is richer, darker in its red-orange color then the Spanish or Italian, and gives a better flavor to rice. The saffron should always be steeped in hot water ahead of time and used as part of the liquid in the recipe. The following is a recipe prepared in the Indian manner.

SAFFRON RICE



Saffron Rice image

A pinch of brilliant burnt-orange saffron, the stigmas of small purple crocuses, gives a dish a slightly bitter and floral flavor. Saffron is traditionally used to perfume bouillabaisse, but it can add a layer of fragrance and color to aromatic basmati. If you don't have saffron, use turmeric (Indian saffron) instead.

2 pinches of saffron, crumbled
1/4 cup boiling water

CLASSIC SAFFRON RICE



Classic Saffron Rice image

Saffron is the stigma of the fall-flowering crocus. These stigma are worth thousands of dollars per pound. Saffron is so valuable because it is a very labor-intensive crop; only 5-7 pounds of saffron can be produced from each acre of land. This makes saffron the most expensive spice by weight.
