  • Bring the water to a boil, remove from heat and add the saffron. Allow to infuse for 20 minutes.
  • Heat the oil in a heavy saucepan and add the rice, stirring well so that all the rice is coated evenly in the oil. Add the saffron water and salt and stir well.

    I followed the recipe to the "t" but I thought it was bland. I rarely cook with saffron so I don't know if saffron is a mild spice or not? The addition of the pistachios were very yummy! Made for ZWT for the Gourmet Goddesses July 2013.
