Saffron Yellow Rice

Mahatma Saffron Yellow Rice has been the best-selling yellow rice mix in the U.S. since its introduction some 40 years ago. Saffron is the most precious and expensive spice in the world. Saffron dates back to the ancient Greeks. Saffron adds a unique flavor and exquisite color to the rice. Flavored with onion and garlic, either as a side dish, or as the beginning of your own Paella, Mahatma Saffron Yellow Rice makes every meal a special occasion.

This product is available in 5 oz, 10 oz, and 16 oz sizes.
