#Saffron #Rice Recipe

A delicacy for ALL #doshas!

Saffron, AKA the royal spice, is a vibrant red substance. Similar to its sister spices (see 4th bullet), saffron is an excellent antioxidant. Therefore, it has the ability to keep your circulatory system clean.1 It is particularly helpful for women of childbearing age. The main active compounds in saffron are crocin, crocetin, kaempferol, quercetin, and safranal.2 Its rasa is astringent, bitter yet sweet.
