Potato and rice pilaf

This is a fantastic dish recipe for potato and Persian rice. It might be served as main course or as dish side. This meal can be vegetarian as well. For making this dish use a kind of potato that stand up to the cooking time.


Other thing is about main ingredient that is rice. Good quality rice is very important matter. In today dish I used Persian smoked rice (berenj-e doodi) that is long grain with high quality and just superb aroma.

So if you are interested you can follow my easy peasy potato rice recipe with yogurt.

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbps butter



Wash the rice two times. Add rice in the rice cooker with enough water to cook, also add salt, potatoes and butter.

Serve the rice hot with yogurt. You can have plain yogurt or mixture of yogurt with chopped cucumber or r of yogurt with beetroot powder.


کته با سیب زمینی و ماست

نمیدونم چی شد چند روز پیش یاد کته ی سیب زمینی و ماست مادرم افتادم که برامون درست میکرد. با اینکه خیلی ساده بود ولی واقعن مزه اش عالی بود و کلی کیف می کردیم.

این غذای ساده و در عین حال خیلی خوشمزه میتونه هم به عنوان غذای اصلی باشه و هم میشه به عنوان یک پیش غذا سرو کرد. در تهیه این کته اولن بهتر هست که از سیب زمینی هایی استفاده بشه که زود له نمیشن وتا آخرپخت برنج دوام میارن. نکته ی بعدی استفاده از برنج ایرانی با کیفیت خوب هست . من برای پخت این کته از برنج دودی استفاده کردم که نه تنها کیفیت خیلی خوبی داره بلکه طعم و مزه ی کته رو چند برابر میکنه. اگر دوست داشتید می تونید عصاره گوشت مرغ یا سبزیجات هم بهش اضافه کنید که باز هم مزه بیشتری میده.

طرز تهیه اش هم بی نهایت آسون هست.

مواد لازم

دو پیمانه برنج دودی ایرانی

سه عدد سیب زمینی پشندی پوست گرفته و خرد شده

یک ق چ نمک

دو ق غ کره

طرز تهیه

برنج را دو سه بار شسته و داخل پلوپز می ریزیم. آب به میزان کافی اضافه می کنیم. همینطور نمک – سیب زمینی های خرد شده و کره رو هم به برنج اضافه می کنیم.

وقتی برنج آماده شد با ماست سرو می کنیم. من از سه نوع ماست استفاده کردم. ماست ساده – ماست و خیار و ماست با پودر چغندر یا لبو.



Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am an archaeologist, photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
