Saffron has a pleasant, soothing aroma and is used mostly as spice and for coloring in many cuisines around the world. It is a great source of Vitamin A & B12 and contains many promising health benefits. If you don’t have access to saffron you can sub it with turmeric and pinch of black pepper, which is another amazing spice.
