Stovetop Saffron Rice
January 13, 2008

This rice gives new meaning to the word AROMATIC! It smells great and tastes great. Much stronger saffron flavor than any restaurant I've been in yet. I used the recommended Basmati rice. I don't think it's been mentioned yet that Basmati rice benefits from being rinsed a couple of times with cold water before being cooked--it cleans off the talc that is added for shipping and storing. I've found Basmati rice in the ethnic section of the discount-foods type grocery stores or in any Arab/Indian specialty stores. BY THE WAY, the Saffron was 1/2 the price at an Indian Store than it was in an American grocery store...worth the search!
