    A fresh and delicious Iranian rice dish. This recipe is vegetarian; however, it is soooo good served with chicken! From My Persian Kitchen.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a saucepan, saute the onion and lima beans over medium heat for about five minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, combine saffron water and yogurt. Add 1/2 cup of your basmati rice to this bowl and mix.
    3. 3
      In a large pot, add enough water to thinly cover the bottom. Add 3 tablespoons canola oil and give it a swirl so the water and oil mix.
    4. 4
      Layer the bottom of the pot with the rice and yogurt mixture.
    5. 5
      Add a handful of chopped dill to the pot then cover with a small layer of rice.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of advieh over the rice.
    7. 7
      Add a generous layer of lima beans.
    8. 8
      Add a generous layer of chopped dill.
    9. 9
      Gently mix the rice, fava beans, and dill.
    10. 10
      Continue layering until you are out of both rice and the vegetables. You should finish with a layer of rice. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of advieh on top.
    11. 11
      With the end of a spatula, make holes around the perimeter of the pot, making sure you don't pass the yogurt-rice layer.
    12. 12
      Cover and on high for 10 minutes.
    13. 13
      Place a towel on top of the pot and cover tightly. Cook on medium-low for 1 hour.
    14. 14
      Halfway through the cooking process, drizzle 2 tablespoons of melted butter or oil over the rice. If you'd like, you can also add a pinch of saffron to the butter or oil too.
