Tahchin (Persian: ته چین‎), also known as Persian Baked Rice Cake, is an Iranian rice cake primarily consisting of rice, yogurt, saffron. Some versions of the dish are more elaborate, folding in chicken, vegetables, fish, or red meat. Tahchin is composed of two different parts: The thin Tahdig part which includes the chicken fillets, saffron, and other ingredients at the bottom of the cooking pot and the second part which is the white rice. In restaurants, Tahchin is mostly prepared and served without the white rice part.
