our iraqi timman rice


pretty much the base food for every meal that we cook. the "hikaka" at the bottom is an absolute must.. its an arab delicacy lol. note, if you try it, that the water amount probably isnt accurate. i dont measure things with a measuring cup-- just cover the rice with about 1/2" of water. also for easier removal, this works best with a nonstick pot
