A little history: I have been trying to make this Persian dish once a week for the last month. The first try was an absolute disaster. The second try was undercooked, which was actually better than the third try, which was…how shall we say…cajun.
This is my best try to date. It is a circle, it isn’t undercooked, and it isn’t charred. It probably could have used another 5 minutes over medium heat, but it’s crusty and saffrony and pretty damn close.
