Tips

Expert Tips

Toss the rice with a fork just before serving to let the steam escape, which helps to keep the grains separate.

Saffron is the world's most expensive spice! If you don't have any on hand and don't want to make a special purchase, ground turmeric also adds a nice flavor and golden color.
