Saffron gives this special rice a wonderful flavor and color. But there 's also cumin and chili powder to give it a run for its money. All cooks up in one pan and is beautiful and fragrant when served to eight happy guests.

INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):


  • In a large saucepan, heat vegetable oil over a medium-low heat. Place the onions in the pan, and saute until golden.
  • Add rice to pan, and stir to coat grains with oil. Mix in green bell pepper, cumin, chili powder, tomato sauce, salt, garlic, saffron, and water. Cover, bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to simmer. Cook for 30 to 40 minutes, or until rice is tender. Stir occasionally.
