Has anyone every tried Iranian or persian rice dishes? They are truly out of this world good. I had taken this morning to master the potato tah-dig rice dish. And did it on my second try because I burnt the first lol But I willing to take all day to get this thing correct because its that good lol
My sister befriended this Iranian guy many years back, and she would cook for us what he taught her because the two were into cooking together. Well, anyway, my husband fell immediately in love with this dish and always requested her to make it for him. And my sister would moved in with us alot (from time to time) and he would say to her, you pay no rent here just make that persian rice and potato dish (lol). That was to be her rent (he would joke). But he was serious, he wanted her to make it for him lol
Its quite a little precedure but really worth it. And since my husband is on vacation this very week I thought, "Im so gonna make his week for him" so I made it for him, along side a persian chicken dish that will compliment this nicely
Now...I was going to post a couple of pics of the dish but I guess I cant do that either for some reason.
But if you do an image search just run... " potato tah-dig"
Then it comes up, looks good too.
The timing on the second cooking is crucial, once you get the time (on your stove) its yours, dont lose it because someone elses time wont be yours, because of each persons stove. For example Renya's recipe over at you tube called "persian rice" (for time alone) is 15 minutes too long for my stove top because my potaoes were burnt both at a slightly lower temp and ten minutes before her time was reached. I shaved 21 minutes off of her second cooking and it was perfect. So she says cook for 45 minutes, mine are perfect at 24 minutes. Thats why when attempting to make this it can be fustrating because you will notice when comparing between the videos the times varry so greatly. Its just how it goes with this one.
Its pretty good though, if someone loves rice dishes, this is a staple over there from what I understand. Theres quite a few decent persian rice dishes Im going to try besides this one. Somewhat time consuming I guess, but really worth the effort.
