"This is a Persian dish which I often make for my husband. It will taste much better if you use fresh herbs. It also goes very well with either fish or chicken. Hope you like it."

  1. In a large saucepan bring water to a boil. Rinse rice; stir into boiling water. Boil just until rice rises to the surface of the water. Drain rice and return it to the saucepan. Stir in the oil and water. Mix in the dill, parsley, cilantro, fava beans, turmeric, cinnamon, salt and pepper.
  2. Cook the rice over medium heat for 5 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to the lowest setting. Cover and simmer for 40 to 45 minutes. Note: It's normal to end up with crispy rice (called Tadig) on the bottom of the pot after cooking; it's delicious.
