Recipe Ingredients for Tah Dig Persian Crusted Rice

2 c uncooked rice
4 c water
1/2 t salt
3 T olive oil

Recipe Directions for Tah Dig Persian Crusted Rice

  1. Combine rice and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, add salt and stir. Cover and allow to simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is done. Rice can also be cooked in a rice cooker.

  2. In a frying or saute pan, heat olive oil in medium heat. Be sure to coat the sides and the bottom of the pan. Add cooked rice and "mash" it with a spoon to compact it, ensuring it is evenly spread throughout the pan. Cover and cook for about 15-20 minutes on medium heat or until you hear it crackle and sizzle.

  3. Once the rice is done, remove lid and carefully flip rice onto serving dish, so crusted rice is on the top. Rice should have a thick layer of brown, crispy rice. Serve immediately.
