Saffron makes everything better. I know it's pricy, but it's worth it for the occasional flavor splurge. This brings a lot of flavor to your rice side.

Love saffron rice! Great to pair this with some butter chicken or shrimp if you desire. Sometimes, I like to add some raisins in the rice for some sweetness.

This saffron rice had a ton of flavor and was everything I was expecting it to be. Such an easy recipe too. Definitely will make this again.
