About this deal

Use of this site constitutes acceptance of our User Agreement and Privacy Policy and Cookie Statement and Your California Privacy Rights. For dinner parties, Iranians usually cook rice by boiling, draining the cooking liquid and then steaming the rice. I used a yogurt and turmeric (to substitute saffron) mix for the tadig for a softer brittle, as recommended by the recipe. For Tahdig lovers, there are even cookers that you can program directly to make a magnificent rice crust. I’m wondering if I did something wrong, or if it’s a faulty unit… And I’m kind of afraid to use it again now.

Shelling fava beans is a tedious and time-consuming process, but it’s really worth all that effort, trust me. Add the green beans and 1 ½ teaspoons salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the green beans soften slightly, 6 to 8 minutes. This is a beloved element of Persian rice dishes, adding an extra layer of flavor and texture to your meal. Use the recipe below as a guide; it might take a couple of tries to get acquainted with your rice cooker. Even when I moved to New York City two years ago, I made plans to fly home for Nowruz — the Persian New Year — the following year.I used to feel that my failure to make good polo further invalidated my already broken “Persian-ness” so I avoided it altogether.

I may not be able to read the Persian alphabet or know much about my family’s history, but I can tell you which khoresh and gusht is served on what holiday, or the correct rice-to-yogurt-to-saffron ratio for tachin. I can’t stand the flavor of it, and don’t like any dressings or other foods that have been “tainted” with the taste! In a past post I have also talked about the difference between a Persian Rice Cooker and other rice cookers on the market.

It’s often saved for someone special in the family – the quantity of tahdig is limited to the surface area of the bottom of the cooking dish! Detach the tadig at the bottom of the pot and arrange pieces around the rice or on a separate small plate (see picture below). I use the measuring cup (standard UK measuring cup – 250 ml), which holds approximately 200 grams of rice. From gruyère to ricotta–which sandwich has the best cheese pull, and which should be left outside of the frying pan?
