Tah Chin-e Morgh (Golden Crusted Saffron Rice Cake)


Tahchin is literally translated as “tah” meaning ‘bottom’ and “chin” meaning ‘to layer’. Tahchin is a gorgeous Persian rice dish, often made of rice, yogurt, saffron, egg, and entire baby lamb or chicken fillets. Some non-Iranian visitors have given it the name of “rice lasagna”. It is nothing like lasagna but when you slice the Tahchin, the layers of rice and meat have given it a lasagna look.
