I remember a dish that looked like this described in a NYT article about Iranian food. It was the authors mother who made this dish and she wrote that she loved it when the rice at the bottom (before flipped) got slightly crispy. Thats what I think this dish looks like!
Is it persian pollo? or crusted rice?
Is it upside-down pilaf (lubia polo) with different ingredients this time? :)-Rainee
Some baked rice pilaf with soy meat- thats my best guess :-) Looking forward to your recipe.
Is it chicken Biryani? or something like it?
umm...i see rice, meat, onions and pine nuts packed together. i'm thinking its some kind of middle eastern dish...maybe makloubeh?
Tofu/Soy bean Pulao?
Some kind of chicken pine-nut risotto?
Upside-down rice cake! No? Ok then, we will wait for tomm.
Oooooo, I can't guess. Drats! But the suspense is killing me, LOL!!!!
I am not sure of the name exactly- but it looks like some kind of pulao/biryani with soy nuggets and pine nuts on top..But if I have to guess I'd say: Shirin plov?
Is this the Italian risotto ?
Nupur! Your posts just showed up in my Reader. So nice to have you back. I just scrolled through your recent posts and your photos are beautiful, as usual. (I have no idea about the dish though.)
Hey Nupur,I think its Upside down Rice/Risotto Pilaf.Uhmmmm guessing some shahi tukda kind of bread strips added.......is it Kasmiri/Persian recipe???I like your site it is interesting, though have not tried more than two recipes till now as I am a new cook in the block:))Guess necessity made me venture into cooking!! Though enjoy tasting new recipes...
Hi Nupur. I have just begun 'one hot stov'ing' and I am having a lot of fun. I think this idea of posting a photograph first and keeping us poor hungry souls guessing for a complete day is ... what can I say... sweet torture..but a fantastic idea!! I am already salivating.
Thanks for the guesses, everyone! You can see the answer in the next post :) Lisa- It is good to be back! The dish is 100% vegan and very delicious :) and you can find the recipe in the next post if you want it. Arati- Don't torture yourself any more, just see the next post :D
