My family loves Mahatma's Saffron Yellow rice, but I don't love the sodium content! This is close enough that my family doesn't know the difference, but I do... oh well, I shall perfect it in time.

This reciped gets four stars with an asterisk, because it really is a 5-star recipe if the spices were doubled. It took a few times making it to get the flavor up where our family wanted it by doubling everything but the rice. Once we did that, it became a family staple, we make it all the time! I make the spice mix in bulk, stored in small containers to mix with 1 cup of dry rice at a time, rather than pre-mixing in the rice. The hardest part is just measuring out the ingredients. With the spices already mixed, this is just as easy as making a package of Mahatma! Thanks, this is excellent.
