CLASSIC SAFFRON RICE



Classic Saffron Rice image

This is easy, simple and wonderful. The original recipe which was printed in the Spring 2005 Penzeys catalog, calls for long-grain rice; however, I liked it much better with basmati. Also, the original recipe called for minced onion but I found it worked very well with dried onion. I indicated that the butter is optional, because I did not add it.

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.

Number Of Ingredients 4

2 pinches of saffron, crumbled
1/4 cup boiling water
1 cup basmati rice
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Steps:

  • In a small bowl, combine the saffron and boiling water and steep for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, rinse the rice under cold water. Place the rice, 1 3/4 cups water, and saffron in a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, until all the liquid is absorbed.
  • Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 10 minutes. Fluff with a fork, season with salt and pepper, and either spoon into the bouillabaisse or serve on the side.

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.

Number Of Ingredients 5

⅛ teaspoon powdered saffron
2 cups boiling water, divided
2 tablespoons butter

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.
