How to use Iranian Saffron? Ground Iranian saffron can be used in Persian recipes, like the rice crispy dish known as Tahdig, as well as many polows (layered rice dishes) and stews. This is also the most favorite method to use Iranian saffron in any meal, which is why we usually alter recipes that incorporate saffron by using this method, ranging from delicious saffron-honey frozen yogurt to delicious Iranian saffron pudding and saffron cake. Iranian Saffron powdered packets are available to purchase however since you’ll never be sure of what’s inside the packets, it’s best you grind it yourself or purchase it directly from a Iranian saffron supplier. We begin by grinding an enormous amount of threads of Iranian saffron in an appropriate mortar and crusher. After the threads begin to disintegrate and become brittle. 1-Take a pich of premium Iranian Saffron and this should be enough for a dish that serves 4 to 6.
