DIRECTIONS

  • Wash the rice in a sieve until the water runs clear, then drain well and set aside.
  • 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.
  • Bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute. Cover with a tight fitting lid, then simmer for 10-12 minutes until the water is absorbed. Turn off the heat and let stand, covered, for at least 10 minutes.
  • Add the butter and fluff lightly with a fork. Serve and garnish with pistachios.
