For making potato rice , good quality rice is a very important key. I have used Persian smoked rice (berenj-e doodi برنج دودی). This kind of rice, imediately after harvest, go under traditional smoking process and after this process, rice transforms into an amazing taste with smoky flavour. When you cook smoked rice (Berenj-e doodi) , a wonderful aroma develops all over the kitchen and house.So if you are interested you can follow my easy peasy potato rice recipe .
