The first time I tried basmati rice with potato tahdig I absolutely adored it. Tahdig forms at the bottom of a pot by using, potatoes, pita bread, milk or yogurt and topped with rice to create a hard crust that captures the flavor during the cooking process. This recipe uses thin slices of potatoes to create a crispy, crunchy, golden tahdig.
A traditional Persian meal typically includes basmati rice, kabobs, Maast o khiar, torshi,and salad shirazi. You can also find each of these authentic Persian recipes in my cookbook, It Begins at the Table, available for sale in early September
In the Iranian culture,tahdig is everyone’s favorite part of the rice. There is a charming tradition of friendly fighting over the tahdig to see who gets the last piece. It’s just that good!
As they say in Persian,
“رمز عبور ته دیگ لطفا!” Pass the tahdig please!
