Forgot to take a photo whiile it was in the pan, this has been in the fridge a while. Possibly a bit red- just call me Kreuger!!! :)
Great taste though, and so easy- definitely the method of choice from now on. Gonna most of it for SFR I reckon. Cheers chef! Great stuff.

At the Uni, we use TRS food colourings to colour our rice, in small quantities. You don't need much of this stuff to create an appealing looking rice.

It's a regional thing though isn't it?

I've had the Bloody Sunday massacre version of pilau (see above). I've had the British flag version (red, white and blue). And I've had everything inbetween. My preference is for a subtle red and green. Seriously I don't give a damn as long as it has flavour.

But, I suppose,  if they proferred plain coloured rice as pilau...hmmm...dunno...even with flavour? Perhaps I do give a damn!   ::)

Instead of Saffron, which we all know is expensive, I also keep Safflower.  Much more affordable and it does a very similar job if you are after colouration.  Instead of $10 for a pinch of Saffron it's $2 for a bag and it can be used as a pretty acceptable substitute.
Whiskey is the answer, but what was the question?

Some top Birs use Saffron
