Persian Rice (پخت برنج ایرانی، کته)

For cooking Rice, usually I don’t rinse it, since I want to keep the vitamins and minerals, preferably make it with rice cooker which is a simple, healthy and effective way to cook:

For every cup of long grain rice, add one cup water (or one and half; depends the rice) , vegetable oil, salt and a pinch of saffron

If you would rather use butter instead of oil, you make your cooking even MORE delicious!

“Persian rice cookers are designed to cook the rice in such a way that a light and crispy crust develops on the bottom of the rice.”

 This crust is called “ Tahdig ” in traditional Persian recipes.
