Exquisite Saffron Rice
Here is a recipe for cooking Saffron Rice. Saffron takes rice from plain to exquisite. The colour, flavor, aroma of saffron rice is just stunning.
Bowl of Sunshine
2 cups Basmati/long-grain rice
3/4 tsp Saffron threads
2 tbls Ghee
3-4 whole Cardamom
3-4 whole Cloves
1 inch Cinnamon stick
1 cup Milk
2 and half cups Boiling Water
Salt to taste
Saffron Rice...At its full glory
Cover rice with cold water and set aside to soak for 30 minutes.
Soak saffron threads in 2 tbsp of milk.
Heat Ghee in a large saucepan over medium heat; add cardamom, cloves and cinnamon and fry 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Cover and cook until rice is cooked and all liquid is absorbed.
There are many ways of making Saffron Rice. Sometimes I use coconut milk in place of milk and add choice of vegetables. Ultimately the end result is always stunning and wonderful.
