    Saffron Basmati Rice

    Yum

    So in my last post, I shared with you a recipe of my Spatchcock Tandoori Chicken. I mentioned that I served it with Saffron rice and will be sharing with you the recipe. So as promised, here is the recipe. 

    I, or perhaps I should say… the whole family fell so deeply in love with saffron rice that I knew I had to re-create it at home. As a family, we would eat out some times and one of out favourite restaurant to have dinner is an Indian joint. My girls will always request to have naan and ‘yellow rice’ which is saffron rice. I secretly rejoice when they ask for it because the husband and I are huge fans too. 

    Loaded with aromatics, warm Indian spices, luxurious saffron, and flavourful ghee. The fluffy, and gorgeously tinted rice turned out to be light, fluffy, and loaded with so much oomph in each bite. Just typing about it is making me salivate quite uncontrollably! Let’s get to the recipe shall we?
