Something that you could not eat it, but there was not a reason given. Are you allergic to any of the ingredients or perhaps you have to watch the sugar content? If you contact me I can use my medical and nutrition background (and substitute cooking experience ) to see if you can enjoy this dish (and any others) with a few modifications. I do this for free. micromed@verizon.net

BUT THIS RECIPE IS THE BEST I HAVE HAD….I have made this dish at least 15 times now…..Just made is for a perisian food virgin…..he LOVED it. ANd that crust? OMG! This is a beautifully written recipe and relatively easy. I make it on weekenights, and even make it when it’s LATE….because, really. 40 minutes and I get this? Ummmm…thats a no brainer!!!! My husband says I keep ruining his restaraunts because it’s so much better. In the restarant…it really is just basmati with cherries and a bit of saffron juice. JUST NOT THE SAME !! Thanks so much for posting this recipe.

I’ll leave it at that. Also don’t read 3 cups as 3lbs..or you will have A LOT of rice! Trying to do this from memory was painful, but I can see the beauty in the dish! Will try again!

It’s also one of my favorite dishes to order when I go to Persian restaurants. I have one question: does all that soaking and washing and rinsing of the basmati rice not cause it to lose some of it’s fragrance?

Also, a comment on your question regarding polow versus biryani. A former roommate I had, who was from India, told me that “biryani” refers to a cooking technique involving the addition of very thinly-sliced onions browned until they are very crispy and caramelized. The brown color of the onions changes the color and flavor of the dish, creating the “biryan”. I’m no expert, so I can’t vouche for that explanation, but I watched her do it with a lamb dish that she called “biryani” and which did not include rice.

Soaking helps with rice:water ratio and makes rice more tender. ~jaden

I added some salt because I thought it lacked it; do you guys add any salt?
