I have a Turkish recipe for Saffron Pilaf. Wash, soak & drain rice. Crumble saffron with fingertips and soak in hot water. Cook the rice (the instructions are rather complicated, and Im sure you have a good way of cooking basmati rice). You end up mixing the butter with the cooked rice, and steaming it gently for 30 minutes, and let it rest for 10 minutes. Just before serving, mix 2 large tablespoons of the cooked rice with the saffron water in a small bowl. Stirring gently, place the rice on a platter and garnish with the saffron rice, sprinkling over the top. This recipe doesnt use much saffron at all. In my limited experience, too much saffron can be indeed too much. If you have a large bag, you might share with your friends. Then you can take turns inviting each other over for saffron pilaf!
