To prepare the barberries, you should soak them for 20 minutes and then put them in a basket until the water is completely gone. Roast the barberry with a little powdered sugar and butter in a suitable pan until the color of the barberry is shiny.

Set aside the ingredients that have been prepared. Now it’s time to prepare the rice. For this, you need to prepare pre-soaked rice. Pour half of the water in a pot and put it on the flame until the water boils. Add the rice to the boiling water and allow about 10 minutes for the rice to be ready.

Important tips for making tahchin morgh

– In order to have an excellent and delicious tahchin morgh, it is better to use only egg yolk. Using egg white makes the bottom of the chicken stiff and dry.

– The number of eggs must be sufficient. A large number of eggs will make the tahchin morgh stiff and a small number will make it loose.

– If you like, you can add some fried eggplant to the mixture of chicken and barberry and use it in the bottom layers.

– Be generous in using saffron to make the tahchin morgh. Use quality saffron so that your tahchin morgh has a unique aroma and color.
