Persian Lentil Rice with Lavash Tahdig (Adas Polo)

With Bread Tahdig: Adas Polo

A thin layer of lavash bread can be cooked beneath the rice to serve as a tahdig. Press it flat against the pot for even cooking.Zachary Zavislak

A layer of thin lavash laid between the pot and the rice in this dish acts as a barrier to prevent the dried fruits from burning, and also becomes a crispy, golden-brown bread tahdig. When the rice is unmolded from the pot, you can serve the mixture whole and allow guests to cut or crack into the tahdig on their own, or you can slice it into clean wedges and serve them alongside individual portions of the rice. If desired, you can embellish the lavash with extra dried fruit.
