If you’re looking for a spectacular side dish, perfect for any dinner, look no further than this delicious Saffron Rice. It’s easier to make than you might think…but you don’t have to let anyone know that. We saw this dish in Summers Under The Tamarind Tree: Recipes and memories from Pakistan, the World Spice Cookbook Club featured selection for April 2017 and knew that we had to get permission from author Sumayya Usmani to share it with everyone.

From the Author: ” I was never fond of raisins and rice as a child, but as my taste buds matured, I realized that my mother’s Persian-influenced recipe is a spectacular yet simple midweek rice dish, a good accompaniment…The saffron is infused in the water that cooks the rice, much like a pulao, and it gives the final dish a rather elegant biryani look.”
