Well hello yellow. Rice that is. A beautiful side dish with all the vibrancy of turmeric and of course some of the benefits as well, go and read all about the wonders of turmeric here. Add the saffron threads and it’s more than beautiful, you can be transported to Sri Lanka or somewhere equally exotic. Am I right? (I know...it’s just rice for crying out loud, but give me a break, I’m trying to make it exciting for you.)
