Ingredients for cooking saffron rice:

Rice: You can use ordinary rice, but to get the standard Persian-flavored saffron rice , you should use Indian Basmati rice, which is popular in supermarkets. You can also easily find Basmati rice here .

Saffron Palace : 1 small pinch. You can freely adjust the amount of saffron when cooking, but the ideal ratio is ½ teaspoon of saffron corresponding to 200g of rice. From the amount of rice suitable for the family, you can calculate the amount of saffron to prepare.
300ml of filtered water (or chicken broth, vegetable broth) for 200gr of Indian Basmati rice.
½ tsp salt.
1 tsp cooking oil.

How to cook saffron rice:

Pour rice and saffron water into the rice cooker with other ingredients such as cooking oil and salt, mix well.

The amount of water to cook rice depends on the type of rice you use as well as your preference for dry/wet cooking. However, chefs claim that the finished product will taste better if the rice is cooked dry and the grains are not sticky. The proportions are as in the recipe specifically for Basmati rice.

If you want to make the rice richer, you can replace the filtered water with chicken broth or vegetable broth (carrots, oysters, radishes boiled for water).
