ته دیگ - Base of the Pot - Tah-deeg

Tah-deeg means the bottom or the base of the pot.  There are a few options for Tah-deeg to choose from; saffron, naan, potatoes and of course just plain.  Before returning drained rice back into the pot for steaming, a little oil is added to the pot with some saffron or turmeric with or without sliced potatoes to cover the base or with a layer of naan.  With the aid of little oil the bottom layer fries and yields in a gloden crispy crust every one is dying to seize one before it runs out!
