So instead I watched them from a distance, memorizing the way they held their knives to dice onions or the exact time to add the minced greens for sabzi polo.

Pronounced "Tah-dig" actually translates to 'the bottom of the pot' in Farsi, a very popular staple in Persian cuisine. The method of double cooking and steaming the rice is a signature step in making the rice beautifully fluffy and light. He knows how to make tahdig the traditional way, but we are at a loss as to how to use this cooker, as it came with no instructions. Wrap the lid of the rice pot with a clean kitchen towel or a couple of layers of paper towels to catch the condensation.My Pars rice cooker is the most useful appliance in my kitchen and cooks rice to perfection every single time.

Rice is a fickle grain, and it doesn’t matter if it’s berenj imported from Mazandaran or brown rice from the supermarket. Available in 3, 4, 5, 7, 10, 15 and 20 cup capacities, Pars Rice Cookers are home essentials for anyone who savors that prized golden crust at the bottom of the rice steamer pot. To say that cooking rice in the Pars is simple is an understatement: to make enough for a family of four, you combine two cups basmati rice with two cups of water in the pot, a tablespoon (give or take a few, depending on personal preference) of vegetable oil and a dash of salt, then plug it in and wait for the timer, which starts at 60 minutes, to make its way down to zero. As hard as I tried, I struggled to find my footing as an Iranian American living in a post-9/11 world. If you prefer not to invest in a Persian rice cooker, you can use a deep, non-stick pot with a tight lid.The Instant Pot Duo Mini is a multifunctional cooker that can also be used as a slow cooker, steamer and pressure cooker. It was given to me by a friend when I moved into my very own apartment in Redondo Beach five or six years ago. They didn't have the silicone seal on the lid and, possibly, the inner pot sat more directly on the burner (heating element).

However, if, like me, your one vice is eating rice from a Teflon-coated pan (and maybe drinking multiple Diet Cokes a day), you have everything to gain—and everyone to impress—with a tahdig-making rice cooker. Tahdig is highly coveted at a Persian dining table and can be made with rice, potato, or even a flour tortilla! It's weeknight tahdig—a dish you can easily make after a long day at work that can be a side to a more substantial main or—with a fried egg and a scoop of yogurt—a satisfying dinner in itself. It says the light will go from red to yellow and back to red but i’ve never seen that happen nor do i u derstand why that should happen. On a nutritional side note, our family has cut down on rice consumption significantly over the years.Add the green beans and 1 ½ teaspoons salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the green beans soften slightly, 6 to 8 minutes.

Don’t worry – just leave it on for longer and the next time go up a notch and a further one if needed until you master the right temp and time for your Kateh. Once you have come to the end of the cooking time turn off heat and take a plate bigger than your saucepan, and place it over the top of the saucepan. One unique feature of our Persian rice cookers is their crust setting, which allows you to create the crisp, golden crust known as tahdig at the bottom of the pot. There’s no other recipe that comes close to the fluffy, fragrant, and completely separated texture of Persian rice—made with my favorite Basmati rice.We’ll also give you practical advice on choosing the right cooker, and tips on how to make your Iranian tahdig a sure-fire success. 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. Indeed, Persian rice cookers have a non-stick interior which should be taken care of with much care. Use a clean towel or tea towel to wrap the lid of the rice cooker to prevent steam escaping during cooking. What you can be sure of though is that the crispy potato tahdig will be gone the minute it hits the table!
