Why I used Saffron and Rosewater both In This Indian saffron rice recipe?

Saffron is used as a flavoured and coloured agent from the ancient times. Uses of saffron are common in Middle Eastern and Meditorian recipes. The Actual recipe of saffron rice comes from Parsia. Saffron rice usually cooked in Vegetable broth with saffrons and some mild flavour simple spices. This rice dish is cooked all over the India and Pakistan with different names. Sometimes the saffron Rice cooked with sugar and eaten as a desert. But most of the time it cooked with little sugar and salt and serve as a side dish with any vegetable or non-vagitarian curries.

as we all know that artificial colour is harmful to our health so like other I flavoured and coloured my Rice dish with a natural healthy colour saffron. And rose water is also a very common Asian Ingredient to make the dish more flavourful. I use the rose water to make this rice flavour more aromatic.
