Upakarma offers world\\\'s finest saffron from the fields of Afghanistan.
It is a natural product and hand harvested.

Saffron is known as the Queen of All Spices.
Saffron is a magical spice with the power to promote overall body health.

Natural, Non-GMO, gluten free, vegan, no preservatives or additives.


With hot, dry winds over semi-arid lands, Afghanistans growing region is ideal for growing saffron.
Among the most prized spices in the world, saffron has a complex flavour that is both semi-sweet and slightly bitter.
Saffron comes from the interior of the amethyst-coloured saffron crocus and must be hand-harvested due to its fragility.
Our Afghani Kesar is the finest of all qualities, free from any kind of additives, in the form of colour or flavour or aroma.

The main difference between Kashmiri and Afghani Kesar is that of the yield of Stigmas which is about 75%.
The excess yield is due to the fact that the stigmas of saffron cultivated in Kashmir are extremely long and with a thick head.
They are also of deep red colour.
The size of the stigmas indicates the inherent suitability of the soil and climate for this product.

Saffron when combined with milk, can improve digestion and appetite, keep your skin healthy and even enhance your immunity.

Saffron has no rules; you can unleash your creativity when cooking with saffron and find new ways to enjoy all it has to offer.
Way to use saffron will depend on the recipe, water, stock or milk and once infused, you can leave it in the fridge overnight if you wish.

Enhances Positive Moods.
Helps Promoting Digestion.
Helps Reducing Sleeping Problems.

Crush the threads.
The quickest way to do that is to break down the threads.
Saffron threads are very delicate, so its easy to crush them with your hand.
Use your thumb and forefinger to gently grind the threads into pieces or use a mortar and pestle to crush the threads as is traditionally done.

Soak the saffron threads.
The effective way to draw the flavor and color out of saffron is to submerge them in a hot liquid.
In most cases, letting it sit in the liquid for 10 to 20 minutes is enough to prepare the saffron but we prefer overnight for depth of flavor.

Measure the saffron threads:
A general rule for saffron that is always good to know is; Saffron is usually measured in grams, the number of threads, or pinches.
A pinch typically means 20 medium-sized threads of saffron.
Use a food scale or count the threads to measure out the saffron.
