Heat up in a non-stick pan the fried onions, add in the saffron and stew for about 3 minutes on low heat. Add the precooked yellow rice and 1 tablespoon of concentrated vegetable stock. Add a drop of water and allow the rice to heat up while stirring. Keep the rice moist and season of with some pepper and salt. At the end, stir in some chopped frozen coriander.
