To flavour and colour this aromatic soup, it is worthwhile finding powdered saffron, or you can use the favourite Spanish colouring Spigol which comes in tiny but potent packets in a bright red and yellow box. It has a warm, spicy taste and is used to give paella its characteristic tone and flavour; it is much cheaper than real saffron and gives a gorgeous golden yellow colour.
