I believe I've posted a few fool-proof methods for cooking perfect rice, but this Persian version takes the grand prize, and it's not even close for second. The beauty of this method is that it doesn't rely on any specific measurements, or even exact times. This will make some of you very nervous, but just go with it.
You can use vegetable oil instead of olive oil, if desired.
This is delicious served with anything, but especially with my Duck Fesenjan recipe.
