I eat A Lot of rice, so yellow would be fun!

Thanks, Eric.
shout the devils name & he shall appear eh giggler!!
i'm sure i did use saffron to colour the rice for that one....infact i think i added too little saffron if i remember correctly & topped up the colour with turmeric....the two flavours did work well together & it does help keep the cost down...saffron is pricey as you know!

I am guessing this is not Tumeric? I have not seen just yellow colouring like this before

sorry hun,missed your's,you did indeed!i'm sure when i cooked the rice for me rendang i put too little saffron in the water so added some turmeric to beef up the colour.any road up whichever one it was the two flavours worked a treat.do you ever buy your saffie from costco? price has gone mad!
couple of years ago i was buying that blister pack of 4 little boxes of saffron for 7 it's now 12 for same stuff/quantity!!

Not a huge fan of turmeric myself, though I use it in Indian cooking. For most everything else, I prefer saffron. I just love the stuff, especially in Paella.

In the words of pop singer Donovan, "I'm just mad about saffron..."
