Dissolve yeast in warm water. Stir in milk, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup margarine, 2 eggs, cardamom, saffron, and 3 cup flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough of remaining flour to make the dough easy to handle. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth. Place in greased bowl, cover and let rise until doubled. Punch down dough; divide into 24 parts.
Shape each piece into an S-shaped rope; curve both ends into a coil. Place a raisin in the center of each coil. Place rolls on greased cookie sheet. Brush tops lightly with softened margarine; let rise until doubled. Mix 1 egg and 1 Tbsp. water; brush buns lightly. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. sugar. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes. Makes 24 buns.
