Robbie's Writing Challenge - Iranian dish_ TAHCHIN

Greetings my lovely EC friends; long time no see. I hope you are all doing great. You rabbits all have participated in Robbie’s challenge and I’m the turtle who is a bit slow therefore late ; anyway better late than never.
I would like to share with you one of Iranian foods called ”Tahchin”. It’s my kids’ favorite food. Ingredients which we need for this food are: boiled rice, two eggs’ yolks, three spoon yogurt, some saffron, barberry ( Zereshk), some oil , some salt and pepper and cooked and chopped chicken’s breast.

First we mix eggs yolks with yogurt and saffron then add three spoon of oil and after that add the chicken that you already cooked. At the end mix all of these ingredients with rice. I use some butter before I pour all these material into pan. Then let it be cooked for 30 minutes with low heat. And one more point my kids don’t like barberry so I didn’t add it; you know kids rule .
You can decorate it with fried barberries and pistachios.

Some people make it thicker but I like it this way. you can eat it with lettuces salad or pickles( I made it myself). That’s all. I hope you like it .
