Cook Perfect Rice Everytime

Saffron Rice

This simple rice recipe is gently spiced and oh so flavourful. It pairs well with almost any meat or vegetarian curry. Try it with some Spicecraft Butter Chicken or the Cauliflower coconut curry.

1. Basmati Rice 275g

2. A pinch of good quality saffron (optional)

3. Water

Cooking instructions:

1. Rinse the rice under water until water runs clear.

2. Soak rice under water for at least 15 mins, longer if possible.

5. Add 1.5 cups water + 1 cup of the saffron liqueur. If not using saffron, just use 2.5 cups of water.
