Use the best quality Saffron. Saffron is a very expensive ingredients and a lot of people sell fake Saffron which looks exactly like the real one but the flavour is no match. Make sure to buy Saffron from a trusted source.For a more profound saffron flavour, you can soak the saffron in 1 tbsp warm water for 5-6 hours.Use Long Grain Basmati Rice to make this recipe. The flavour and texture of this rice is unmatchable.Make sure to rinse the rice to get fluffiest cooked rice.You can also use brown rice to make Saffron Brown Rice. It will be healthier but the taste will be definitely not like when made with basmati rice. Also if using brown rice, the cooking time and amount of water used will be slightly more than white rice.Jasmine rice works well in this recipe too. Treat it just like basmati rice.
