saffron recipes | 561 indian kesar recipes |

Saffron recipe collection. Kesar, or more commonly known as saffron, is one of the most known and expensive spice in the world. It is actually the stigmas (thread like things found in the flower that carry pollen seeds) that are dried up and used to provide flavor, color and seasoning. The fact that it is so labor intensive and has a unique flavor, is the reason for it being so expensive.

Kesar provides a beautiful yellow color to the food it is added to and has a mild grassy, sweetish taste. Even though it is seems like a sweet taste, it is still added to savory dishes to give them a royal taste. To use saffron, you have to take a few strands and add them to warm milk or water for 10 mins till it dissolves. Even a few strands are enough to flavor an entire dish.
