  • Summary

    Inspired by the Persian dish tahdig, this skillet rice cake gets especially crisp as it cooks. A layer of potatoes is cooked on the bottom of the rice, then the cake is flipped to serve so the potatoes are on the top.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups basmati or jasmine rice, rinsed
    • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
    • Large pinch saffron
    • 1 large egg white
    • 1/4 cup dried cherries, chopped
    • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 large russet potato, peeled and thinly sliced
