Kateh - Iranian Simple Rice

45 mins (prep 5, cooking 40)
3 ingredients
4 servings
I think this way of making rice comes from the North of Iran. I prefer this to the more classic polow as it's less work to do and it's faster.My husband has a very interesting way to check if the rice it's done:he spits a little on his finger and places the saliva on the pan. If the spit sizzles the rice is done!
