Saffron Jasmine Rice Recipe



saffron jasmine rice

  • 2/3 cup jasmine rice
  • 1-1/3 cups chicken stock
  • 4 teaspoons butter
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon saffron threads
  • 1/8 teaspoon of ground turmeric



In a skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Stir in the rice and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, until the rice begins to absorb the butter and becomes opaque (do not brown the rice).

Quickly pour in the chicken broth along with the saffron threads and turmeric. Cover immediately, reduce heat to low and cook 20 minutes, or until all of the liquid is absorbed. For best results, keep covered while the rice is cooking.
