Saffron, the most expensive spice in the world, has sold in recent years for as much as $2,700 per pound! The price tag is so high because it must be harvested by hand and it takes more than 75,000 threads, or filaments, of the crocus flower to equal one pound of the spice! Most saffron comes from Iran, Turkey, India, Morocco, Spain, and Greece. Prices vary depending on the quality and the amount, but high-quality saffron has been known to go for as much as $15 per gram (0.035 ounces).
"Kesar" Cool!!! For dry colour: Mix turmeric (haldi) and gram flour (besan) to get a bright yellow powder For wet colour: • Turmeric (haldi) mixed with water • Boil marigold (gainda) flowers in water • Boil peels of pomegranate (anaar) in water • Soak a few strands of saffron (kesar) in a litre of water. This gives a lovely yellow colour, though it is an expensive option due to the high price of saffron.
