I bought safran at the spice souq for 10Dh/gram ($3/gram). The shop clearks were not kind and they don't discount so much. Anyway I bought some.
When I returned home, I tried to cook safran rice, however, amazingly the rice became "bright purple pink!" not yellow. What's this!!!? There is no smell of safran and I spoiled all my rice in the cooker. Safran was fake and I needed to throw all of them away. This is my worst memory at Dubai.
Don't go to the spice souq.
