saffron = kasubha
worcestershire sauce is not fermented fish sauce. fish sauce= patis(tagalog)

The ingredients of a traditional bottle of Worcestershire sauce sold in the UK as “The Original & Genuine Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce” are malt vinegar (from barley), spirit vinegar, molasses, sugar, salt, anchovies, tamarind extract, onions, garlic, spice, and flavouring.

the saffron you buy in most supermarket or in the palengke is not the real saffron. if you want real saffron, try rustan’s supermarket or any high end supermarket. genuine saffron is very expensive but you will only need to buy a very small amount. if you live in the states, the oriental stores should have the genuine saffron.

instead of saffron that you cannot in any local grocery stores substitute it with tumeric powder the yellow color mix with red of tomato sauce makes the color red orange and paprika goes with it.
no available worcestershire use soy sauce
