Stovetop Saffron Rice
April 11, 2003

This is a tasty recipe. For those of you who find variations on this recipe bland, it is important to note that you **must** use Basmati rice to make this dish, as the Indians do. Basmati has a fairly rich, nutty flavour that contributes to the delicate spice flavours. If you are making this with regular long grain rice, yes it will be bland to some. Basmati is available in the foreign foods section of most North American grocery stores. Also one could probably stand to cut the butter down a bit if one were trying to cut calories out of this dish.
