In Persian cuisine, this is traditionally a peasant dish made with lamb called 'tah cheen' because tah means “bottom” and cheen means “to layer"; and the dish is essentially layers of rice and meat. The bottom of the pan produces the delicious, flavorful and crispy layer of rice called tah-deeg that gives it the look of a golden brown cake. This recipe is made with boneless chicken, but fish, lamb or a whole chicken are other options. In the Persian tradition, tah cheen should be paired with yogurt, herbs and eaten immediately so that the tah-deeg does not become soggy.As most Persians cooks do not use measurements or recipes because they develop their own during a lifetime of cooking, the cuisine is both challenging and rewarding for the novice cook. A blending of scribbled notes, directions, and tips from my parents and grandmother along with the cookbook A Taste of Persia by Najmieh Batmanglij produced this recipe for tah cheen.Good luck and enjoy!

When I was young and we had guests coming over, one of the dishes my mum always made was kabsa. Serving platters loaded with spicy golden rice and chicken topped with almonds and raisins would take center stage on the table. My part in it was to chop the tomatoes, slice the peppers, and grate the carrots. You can say I was mum’s sous chef.
Kabsa or kabseh is one of the traditional dishes served in the Arabian Gulf area. It is a unique mixture of rice (has to be long grain and you can use basmati), meat (chicken, beef, goat, lamb, or even camel), spices, and vegetables topped with nuts and raisins. The secret to kabsa’s identity and taste is the blend of spices used in it: black pepper, allspice, cloves, cardamom, saffron, cinnamon, black lime, bay leaves, and nutmeg are some of the spices that lend their magic to make kabsa a special and memorable dish.
I am sharing my own kabsa recipe which is mildly adjusted from my mum’s, and she makes awesome kabsa. I urge you to give it a try as is and from there you can adjust the spices, change the vegetables, and make the recipe your own.
