    recipe title: Saffron Rice
    category: Appetizers, Other
    keywords: greek, Side dish
    servings: 4
         25    Saffron strands
        1/2 c  Hot water
          2 tb Olive oil
      1 1/2 c  Basmati rice
      2 1/2 c  Water
               Salt; to taste
    Soak the saffron in the hot water for 10-15 minutes. Put the rice in a strainer and rinse under hot water until it runs clear. Then rinse again under cold water and leave to drain. Heat the oil in a saucepan and add the rice. Saut+ until it becomes translucent. Add the remaining amount of water and salt, bring to a boil, and add the saffron infusion. Stir, cover tightly, and leave to simmer on a very low heat (preferably on a heat diffuser) - for about 20 minutes, until craters from on the surface. Stretch a piece of cheesecloth or a dish towel over the top, cover tightly with a lid, and leave in a warm corner to rest for 10-15 minutes. The cloth will absorb the steam from the rice and allow the grains to separate. Source: Recipe from a Greek Island - by Susie Jacobs ISBN: 0-671-74531-X Typed for you by Karen Mintzias
