Tahdig Sibzamini Recipe(Persian Potato Tahdig) in 6 Steps

In my opinion, tahdig sibzamini should be declared as a great food. Let’s go to know what is tahdig? Tahdig is usually a part of the rice that sticks to the bottom of the pot and is roasted. Tahdig sibzamini, as the name suggests, is a set of sliced potatoes fried with oil in the bottom of the pot.

Of course, this tahdig is also prepared in another model, made with grated potatoes, which we will explain. So, I suggest you, to avoid a possible fight (just kidding, of course), make sure to use a large pot and plenty of potatoes.

In short, if you are always hungry like me and love Potato Tahadig, be sure to stay with meals cook until the end of this article to learn a new, fast, and delicious dish.

How to prepare tahdig sibzamini with makaroni

1. First, boil the pasta for 10 to 15 minutes in boiling water with a little salt and oil. Then drain the pasta and prepare your beautiful sliced potatoes.

2. Put the pot on a high gas flame for one minute until the water at the bottom evaporates completely so that the tahdig does not stick to the bottom.

Now, pour the required amount of oil and saffron as desired. Then, place the sliced potato on the bottom of the pot so that it covers the entire bottom surface of the pot.

3. Make sure that the potatoes do not overlap and stick to the bottom of the pan so that they are fried accurately. You can add a little sesame to the bottom of the pot if you want, but I don’t do this.

4. A very important golden point here is that only someone who has cooked knows and is not just an article writer.

If you want a great color and taste, pour some macaroni mixtures on the potatoes and press it with a spatula.

This will make the color and taste of the macaroni mixture penetrate all parts of macaroni and have a great color and taste.

5. After that, we pour the rest of the makaroni and go to the next step, which is very important.
At this stage, the lid of the pot should be completely sealed. To ensure this, you can use a steamer.

6. After that, increase the gas flame for 10 to 15 minutes. You will hear the sound of oil and potatoes sizzling during this time, which is very pleasant.

Then, to ensure that this time is enough, you open the lid of the pot a little and if you see steam, this time is enough, and then we lower the flame and wait for 45 minutes until the food is ready.

Congratulations, your golden Tahdig sibzamini is ready and you can serve and enjoy.

How to serve tahdig sibzamini?

If tahdig sibzamini is from pasta tahdig, you can eat it easily. You can eat it at the beginning of the meal or at the end of the meal. Or if it was rice, you can pour stew on it and eat it.

Today, with the increase in tahdig fans, this dish is served in restaurants as a separate dish with khoresh gheymeh and khoresh ghormeh sabzi. I personally serve any tahdig with salad shirazi, which is very tasty and interesting.

Tips for potato tahdig

tips for potato tahdig

  • You must dry the bottom of the pot with heat in advance and make sure that there is no water left at the bottom of the pot so that tahdig does not stick to the bottom of the pot when serving.
  • After slicing the potatoes, be sure to dry them completely so that the tahdig becomes crispy at the end and does not stick to the bottom of the pot.
  • If the lid of your pot doesn’t close completely, be sure to use a textile as a lid so that your tahdig cooks more easily and better.
  • The amount of oil or butter used should be suitable; if it is too little, it will be dry, and if it is too much, it will be too greasy and not suitable for eating.
  • The time when the gas flame is high will cause the tahdig to become golden and roasted at the end, and pay attention not to be too long, which will cause the tahdig to burn.
  • To make tahdig more beautiful and tastier, you can use some brewed saffron or a little turmeric, which is completely optional.
