How to make saffron extract

Saffron (kesar) is a precious and an expensive spice, which is why it is necessary to extract the most out of it, quite literally! Not only does this extract adds a mouth-watering flavour to a food item but also enhances its colour.

  • Step

    1

    In a small, clean mortar, add a big pinch of saffron threads, approximately 1/4 tsp or 1 gram.

  • Step

    2

    Grind the threads with the pestle until they are well crushed.

  • Step

    3

    Heat 2 tbsp milk in a pan. Once the milk comes to a roaring boiling, turn off the heat.

  • Step

    4

    Add the crushed saffron strands to the warm milk. Gently stir for saffron to release its colour, aroma and dissolve in the milk. Do not use a wooden spoon when mixing saffron as it can absorb saffron easily.

    You can use this extract to flavour desserts, beverages and curry dishes.
