At Kashmirica, you will get the purest saffron from the valley of Kashmir. In this detailed description of our saffron box, we shall give you a complete idea about what organic saffron is and why it is a great idea to buy saffron online from Kashmirica.
Origin of Our Saffron
Kashmirica only sells the finest quality of saffron that originates from the saffron fields of Pampore in Kashmir. Although costly, the saffron from Kashmir is known for its quality, aroma, and taste. This is why we export our saffron boxes to 4 continents of the world.
Kashmirica only sells high-quality Kashmiri Saffron/Kesar and we do not endorse the selling of Iranian Saffron or Afghani Saffron. That is majorly because the goodness of Kashmiri Saffron is UNMATCHED.
Not only is Kashmiri Saffron /Kesar thicker than its Iranian and Afghani counterparts, but it is a lot more aromatic and a lot better in taste. And countless research articles and food reviewers have stated that.
Quality of Our Saffron
While there are a few varieties of saffron, that are for sale online, most of them are not pure. They either are adulterated or are varieties of saffron from Iran, and at times in a Kashmiri box. Even while most brands from Kashmir and elsewhere focus on growth and sell adulterated saffron, here at Kashmirica, we only sell the finest variety of saffron that is called Mongra (Newal).
All this pain to preserve the quality of our products over quick profits is because we want to serve exclusive products from Kashmir to you. Our Organic Mongra Saffron is dark red in color, with no added chemicals, colors, or preservatives. This makes Kashmirica’s Organic Saffron perfect to be used in any culinary preparation, and a great natural medicine that is great for your health.
Our Pure Kashmiri Kesar is safe and beneficial for pregnant women and is apt for use as a medicinal herb, as is evident in the reviews we get. Head on to check our saffron reviews to know more.
Frequently Asked Questions Before Buying Organic Kashmiri Saffron Online
Whenever you plan to buy saffron online, you might have a few questions in mind. We have listed the most frequently asked questions about Kashmiri Saffron/Kesar that our team is asked regularly. If there is a question beyond the scope of this list, please feel free to contact us.
1. What Exactly is Organic Saffron?
Saffron is also known as Az-Zaffran or Kesar. It is one of the most precious spices in the world. There have been tales told about saffron all across the world, but most of you would never have seen original saffron. Probably because it is a rare commodity.
The spice (Kesar) is known for its value and rich properties such as aroma, color, and taste. Unfortunately in the markets, only adulterated varieties or the more common Iranian Saffron and Afghani Saffron are available.
Much different from the cheap threads sold online, Kashmiri Organic Saffron is an exotic spice that looks magnificent to the naked eye. Also, its dull fragrance stimulates the brain instantaneously. If you touch it, you feel eclectic.
Kashmir’s Pure Saffron will activate all your senses. Trust us on that.
Kashmiri Saffron is a spice that has both medicinal and vanity values. Saffron, Zaffran, or Kesar, grows in Kashmir, Spain, and Iran. However, the quality of Kashmiri Saffron is considered to be the best. That’s why the price of saffron from Kashmir, Spain, and Iran sees a significant difference.
While Saffron is the most recognized name for this red spice, people often ask, “What is Kesar” or “What is Az-Zaffran”. Nothing more, Kesar and Zaffran are just other names given to saffron.
2. What are the Types of Saffron/Kesar?
Saffron is of 4 different types:
Mongra is the finest quality of saffron that contains red stigmas, picked up by the hand. At Kashmirica, we only sell Mongra Saffron.
Lacha is the second-best variety of saffron which has some yellow stigmas mixed with the red ones.
Zarda is saffron with yellow hues. It is the 3rd best variety of saffron.
Choora is the cheapest variety of saffron. It is almost like dust, or rather say it is the residue left after picking the finest variety of organic saffron.
Summarizing: There are 4 different types of saffron (केसर) from Kashmir that is sold online.
- The finest quality is of the Mongra saffron variety, and that is what we sell. It is a premium variety of saffron that only contains red stigmas that are completely handpicked.
- Next in quality is lacha saffron. It has a lot of red strands and fewer yellow strands. Here, we must say that the redder it is, the better is the quality of saffron. All you need to be wary about is a color dye induced on low-quality saffron to make it look one of higher quality.
- Zarda is another variety of saffron that majorly has yellow stigmas and very few red ones.
- Choora is a residual form of saffron that consists of small stigmas that are usually red in color.
3. What are the Uses of Organic Saffron?
Saffron or Kesar, has a place both in cuisine and religion in India. It is also used as a natural dye. Some people are simply fascinated by its color. They see it as a color of prosperity.
Kesar is a must-have ingredient in biryani and is the basis of preparing the world-famous Kashmiri Kahwa. It is also used in South and North Indian dishes apart from being a vital component of Mughlai Cuisine. Milk-based sweets use saffron in abundance.
Saffron (केसर) has many medical and therapeutic qualities. The uses of Saffron are too many to list here. It is used as a spice in food, as a natural cosmetic, as a natural medicine in nature therapy, and for worship-related activities in many religions such as Hinduism.
In India, it is common among women to keep taking saffron from after the second trimester of pregnancy to the birth of the baby.
4. What are the Benefits of Organic Kesar?
Some research says that pure organic kesar can protect against cancer. It has a good effect on the human immune system and also gives freshness to body cells. It has had some effect in curing Parkinson’s disease and has helped to relieve people of the common cold.
If you want a sharper memory and better digestion, saffron is your thing. As a beauty product, saffron has produced amazing results. It helps in toning the skin and improving the complexion. Pregnant women also tend to use saffron, especially with milk.

4. What is the Price of Saffron Online?
People often ask, “why is saffron so expensive?” Since it grows only in a few countries of the world, that automatically makes it a scarce spice to buy. Saffron is obtained from the petals of the saffron plant.
It takes about 75000 blossoms to get 1 pound of saffron, and the process is very hectic. Its use in medicines and its known anti-cancer properties make it an extremely valuable spice.
The price of saffron or Kesar is rather high because of its rarity. Also, the labor involved in obtaining the spice is incredible. This is why saffron is also called Red Gold. Saffron grows in a selected few cities of the world and has some charm attached. In, Iran saffron pigments have been found in 50,000-year-old depictions.
So, the Kashmiri spice has a legacy associated as well. It takes around 70-80 flowers to produce one tablespoon of saffron. Saffron comes from the stigma of Crocus Sativus after the seed is buried 6 inches deep.
So, the intense labor adds to the price of saffron. The rate of saffron as compared to other spices is very high. While Iranian Saffron or other adulterated forms of saffron can come in a bracket of 200-350, Kashmiri Saffron that is pure and unadulterated falls in the bracket or around Rs. 600 per gram.
Here is our detailed blog that talks about; Why is saffron expensive?
5. How can I check its Authenticity, if I buy Kesar Online?
You can do a water dissolution test to check the authenticity of our Kashmiri Kesar. If after putting the strands of saffron in water, they start to give out color instantaneously, it’s not authentic.
Authentic saffron takes time to spread its color. You can also check the aroma of the saffron you have ordered. It must not be too harsh or too soft. You can buy Kesar online from Kashmirica with the assurance that you are going to receive the best form of Kesar online. Read our reviews to check what our customers say about us.
6. What does Pure Saffron taste like?
Kashmiri Saffron tastes somewhat harsh. Even its fragrance is pungent although light. At the same time, its perfume is mesmerizing. This is why saffron oil is used in many natural perfumes. It is very difficult to understand but you don’t directly sense its presence in a dish, but its absence will make the dish void of some splendid flavor. Sounds tricky, right?
7. Which is the best Quality of Saffron?
Mongra is the best quality of saffron. At Kashmirica, we only sell the Kashmiri Mongra form of Saffron which has a beautiful aroma and an attractive red color. In our opinion, Kashmiri Mongra is the best saffron in the world.
We have written an in-depth blog on What is the Best Saffron Brand in India? You can check it out.
9. Does Saffron have Medicinal Benefits?
Saffron is used to cure cough, baldness, Alzheimer’s disease, male infertility, postpartum depression, asthma, high blood pressure, athletic performance, erectile dysfunction, anxiety, depression, menstrual discomfort, and premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
There is some evidence that saffron also is useful in age-related macular degeneration (AMD), improved sexual function in people taking antidepressants, increased blood sugar levels in people taking medications for schizophrenia, and premature ejaculation in men.
10. How to use Saffron?
Saffron can be used as a coloring agent in food preparations or used to prepare kahwa which is a kind of tea cherished in Kashmir. It can also be put in warm milk and taken as such.
Many confectioners use saffron on top of their sweets which gives a very enticing look to them. Bald people can directly apply saffron on their heads with the help of some water to see some hair regrowth.

11. How to use Saffron in Milk?
It is always advisable to warm milk before you put saffron in it. Some people prefer to boil the milk along with saffron, but we do not advise that. Saffron is better when it is not boiled as that doesn’t kill its nutrients if over-boiled.
12. How to use Saffron During Pregnancy?
It is best to consult your doctor about such an issue but we do not see a problem with using saffron along with milk. And you can always cherish the Kashmiri Saffron Khawa.
We have written a detailed article on Saffron During Pregnancy: Benefits, Uses, Side Effects & More. You must read it if you’re pregnant.
13. How to use Saffron for Skin?
Add saffron in water and some milk cream. Apply on your skin while using saffron to touch the skin directly and then cover it with milk crème. It will work as a moisturizer, a cleaner, and a natural beauty product.
14. How to use Saffron for Fairness?
Apply saffron directly on your skin along with any natural crème. But remember to massage it well so that the extracts from saffron reach your skin. Keep the mixture on your skin overnight and rinse in the morning.
If you wish to apply saffron directly on your skin, make sure you put saffron directly on the skin along with some water.
15. How to eat saffron?
Don’t eat saffron raw. Use it in food, sweets, or drink it with milk. Else you can prepare kahwa with it. There is a recipe for it on our blog.
16. Edible Saffron is Obtained from which Part of the Saffron Plant?
Pure saffron comes from the flower of the saffron plant. The petals of the saffron plant are the Mongra Saffron that we sell. The same part has the most beneficial medicinal qualities and is rich in taste and color.
17. Where to buy Saffron?
The best place to buy saffron (केसर) is a town called Pampore in Kashmir. That’s where all the fields of saffron are, and that’s where all its traders live. So, if you come in the actual saffron harvesting season which is in late October and early November, you can directly purchase raw Kashmiri Saffron from the fields.
Saying that when it comes to buying Kashmiri Kesar, you have to be very careful about the authenticity of what you are buying. Many brands that sell saffron online and in stores stock a cheap fake version of saffron that they sell for 100-300 INR.
But, common sense tells us that the most expensive spice in the world, also known as red gold can’t be so cheap. Corrupt practices in the trade of saffron are rampant and one has to be extra cautious while buying it.
