Help is Iranian rice so difficult?

Hello- not sure if this will get posted but I will try.

My family is coming from Iran and I wanted to make a good meal. However I have never cooked Persian food.

What do I do with this saffron? How to I make Iranian rice? I think I baught everything but man it sounds complicated

I usually soak saffron in a tiny amount of warm water or milk before using it.

Iranian Rice

Dear Kooler,

This site may help you: www.thepersianfusion.com/ if you are looking for rice with that tahdig crust?

We don't have many Persian recipes here on Mamta's Kitchen, but if you want something impressive but simple, here's a great one from Greg Malouf, a cookery author who specialises in various of the Middle Eastern cuisines:

Of course, my feeling is that if your friends from Iran are visiting you, they may enjoy non-Persian food instead, and why not show off something different to them? If you would like to cook Indian, then we have many fabulous and easy recipes here that you can try.

For example, tandoori roast lamb is a winner for an impressive feast and easy too.
