Sweet Saffron Rice
Sweet Saffron Rice Preparation
Place rice in a strainer and rinse with cool water until water runs clear. Set aside. Place saffron in a small glass bowl, add boiling water and let soak for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir together rice, 2 cups water, cinnamon, cloves and salt in a large saucepan or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. (Do not remove cover while cooking.) Remove from heat and set aside. Simmer saffron water, jaggery and cardamom in a small saucepan over low heat until mixture forms a syrup, about 2 to 3 minutes. Pour over rice.
