(Persia Digest) - Estanbuli is one of the easiest meals to make and at the same time one of the most popular Iranian dishes that all Iranians know how to cook.
Ingredients (serves 4):
3 Cups rice
1 Sliced onion
2 to 3 Grated tomatoes
2 Diced potatoes
3 tbsp tomato paste
Salt and red pepper to taste
8 tbsp oil
Heat some oil in a pot over medium heat and sauté the onions until it changes color.
Add the tomato paste and sauté for another two minutes. Add the tomatoes and potatoes, mix them and bring to the boil. Add salt and pepper.
Add the rice to the pot, then add boiling water, so that the water is a little more than the rice. Turn up the heat.
When the water is completely absorbed by the rice and small holes appear on the surface, lower the heat and cover the pot to steam cook the rice. After the rice is cooked, pour the remaining oil over and around the rice and serve it after 3 to 4 minutes.
