How to make Saffron Flavored Pistachios

  1. In a deep broad vessel, pour 2 glasses of water. Add saffron & sea salt. Put on the flame and bring to boil. Remove from the flame.
  2. Now add the pistachios. Keep for minimum 3 hours. Overnight is best. ( This is called brining)
  3. Next day remove pistachios from water.
  4. Line a tray with parchment paper. Spread the pistachios in a single layer. Sprinkle salt
  5. Roast in the oven @ 200 °C for about 10 to 15 minutes
  6. Check from time to time for the toasty nutty flavor. Once done remove & completely cool.Njoy.

My Tip:

Notes # Pistachios has to be soaked completely under water. We are taking broad vessel for this very reason. # Brining is an important part of this recipe. To brine mean to soak in salted or flavoured water. # Use of good quality saffron is necessary for this recipe. # Do not preheat the oven. # When the pistas are in oven, After 10 minutes keep checking from time to time as each oven temperature varies. # When removed from oven pistachios will be soft. It will harden & have crunchy texture once completely cool.
