Saffron powder is a great way of making the most of your saffron.

In a Persian household, saffron is like gold. It is often quite expensive, but this tip makes your saffron last a lot longer.

In a coffee or spice grinder place 1 tsp of good quality saffron, 2 tlbs sugar and 1/4 tsp of powdered orange food colouring (available from Indian grocers). Grind until a fine, pinky powder. Store in a spice shaker, and shake onto polo rice during the last stages of cooking. Gently stir through before serving.
