Persian Chicken Rice

The name of this dish is tahchin polo (پلوته چين) and it's a Persian rice dish made mainly from saffron, yogurt, and eggs.  The saffron makes the rice very fragrant and yellow. The outside of the rice becomes hard tadhig (literally meaning the bottom of the pot) while the inside is still nice and fluffy. This recipe calls for using the stove but you can bake it, too.   [yumprint-recipe id='22']
