    The tahdig is extremely delicious using flat bread (split it in half). We found the rice recipe needed a little less oil & that not so many zereshk & a little more sugar for us. Teatowel around lid to absorb moisture. When grounding up the saffron it helps to put a tiny bit of sugar with it. Perfect & light golden jeweled delight.. perfect with morq-e-zafarani. Thankyou for a wonderful recipe.
