This dish can be prepared partially in advance: Parboil the rice, assemble the ingredients, and refrigerate, covered, for up to a few hours. Bring to room temperature before baking. It is best prepared in a clear glass baking dish and served with yogurt and the fresh herb platter known as sabzi khordan.
