Persians brought Saffron to India around 500 BC. However, according to the traditional Kashmiri legends, the two Sufi ascetics, Khawaja Masood wali (r.a) and Sheikh Sharif-u-din wali (r.a) during the 11th and 12th centuries A.D brought it to the region. Both the foreigners having fallen sick, beseeched a cure for the illness from a local tribal chieftain. To this day, grateful prayers are offered to the two saints during the harvesting season in late autumn. The Kashmiri Hindu epics of that time mention its cultivation as well. ”In the beautiful valley of Kashmir, fields of it have heralded the dawn for close to 2500 years.” The rich aroma of it marks all celebrations in Kashmir, like the Saffron Kahwa, a traditional Kashmiri beverage that is a must on such occasions. No festivity is considered complete without it.
Saffron is famous in the world for its fine flavor, color, and medicinal value. It has shown its role in disease prevention and its treatment. The stigma is rich in antioxidants and prevents the degeneration of cells. The components of saffron, crocin, and safranal help in the suppression of inflammatory pain responses and decreased the number of neutrophils. Safranal has a protective effect against nephrotoxicity and is cardioprotective. It also reduces fasting blood glucose levels and also exhibits an anti-tumor effect.
