Basmati Rice With Potato Crust

Basmati Rice With Potato Crust created by Artandkitchen

Delicious with recipe#254525. Persian like I believe though this was inspired by a modification of recipe#233347 which I don't believe is actually Iraqi.

Ready In:
1hr 4mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 13 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter
  • 34 cup white basmati rice
  • 4 cups water (may use some chicken stock if wished along with water)
  • sea salt, to taste
  • 2 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (I like to use yellow fleshed potatoes)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

directions

  • Rinse then soak rice for 10 minutes to 30 depending on quality.
  • Melt 2 Tablespoons of butter in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir in the drained soaked rice and cook for 1 minute.
  • Bring water and stock if using to a boil add sea salt to taste add rice, bring back to a boil and boil exactly 8 minutes, drain.
  • Melt 1/4 cup butter and toss in the sliced potatoes and sea salt to taste.
  • In a heavy-bottomed pot with a tight-fitting cover, and low rim, arrange the potato slices, overlapping in 2 layers covering the bottom of the pot (using all of the butter they were tossed in).
  • Sprinkle with the garlic.
  • Evenly spoon the half-cooked rice on top of the potatoes and garlic, and spoon the remaining melted butter over the rice.
  • Cover the pot and cook over medium low heat or to brown potatoes slightly, then turn heat down and cook for 40 minutes, or until the rice is tender.
  • Removing properly can come with practice but it helps to dip the pot in cold water for 30 seconds making sure not to get water in the pot! Then flip --.
  • Enjoy!

    Dear Ummi, thanks a lot for your recipe. Your recipes are always top!<br/>I followed the instruction and the rice came out perfect. It was not so easy to remove the potatoes from the top, but finally they came out perfect: brown and not burned!<br/>Really very yammi a perfect side dish that can be combinated with a lot of dishes. I served this with tandoori chicken and rasted broccoli.
