In a sieve, rinse rice under cold water until water runs clear (not cloudy). Let rice drain while you dice the yellow onion. In a medium pot, melt butter over medium heat and add diced onion and Saffron Salt. Cook onion for 4 to 5 min., or until softened. Add in rice and toast for 3 to 4 min., stirring often. Stir in water and raisins, reduce heat to medium-low, and cover pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 15 to 20 min., or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Fold in frozen peas and cover for 3 more min. to allow peas to heat up. Finish with Saffron Salt to taste before serving.

Serving Suggestions
