saffron commonly known as “kesar” is a type of high-quality saffron from
Kashmir, that is derived from the Crocus sativus flower. It is considered to be
a luxury spice and one of the most
expensive and rare types of saffron due to its intense color, aroma, and
flavor. The Mongra saffron threads are thick and contain a high amount of
crocin, which is the compound responsible for its intense color.
Our saffron comes from
Pampore, Kashmir and is sourced from a single estate. Approximately 150 flowers
produce 1 gm of mongra saffron. This luxury spice has many uses in food as well
as alternative Indian medicine
