 Product Description

Saffron is a spice derived from the flower of Crocus sativus, commonly known as the saffron crocus. Crocus is a genus in the family Iridaceae. Each saffron crocus grows to 20–30 cm (8–12 in) and bears up to four flowers, each with three vivid crimsonstigmas, which are each the distal end of a carpel.

Together with the styles, or stalks that connect the stigmas to their host plant, the dried stigmas are used mainly in various cuisines as a seasoning and colouring agent. Saffron, long among the world's most costly spices by weight, is native to Southwest Asia and was first cultivated in Greece

Perfect for adding colour and flavour to your dhaal. Can also be used to colour foods like 'yellow rice', and as a substitute for 'annatto' (which gives a golden yellow colour).
