Saffron rice is dubbed the most expensive spice in the world. Sometimes, I like to make a simple “Yellow” Rice by using a tiny pinch of Tumeric— this gives rice a pretty yellow color, but doesn’t add any flavor to the rice. It’s a versatile way to make boring rice look pretty, with a variety of garnishes.
