3-4 dried limes (@sadaf_foods )
2 russet potatoes, 1.5 cubed and the remainder half shredded
Salt
Pepper
Turmeric
Rice

  1. Put the bone marrow in about 3 cups of water and boil for a few minutes until you see a lot of white foam at the top of the water. Take off heat, wash the marrow and the entire pot.
  2. Put the marrow and the onion in a pot, fill halfway with hot water, add salt, pepper and turmeric. (𝐈𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐝𝐨𝐧’𝐭 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭 𝐭𝐨 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐛𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐦𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐨𝐰, 𝐮𝐬𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐜𝐡𝐢𝐜𝐤𝐞𝐧 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐩). Put the stove on high and once it starts boiling, reduce to low.
  3. Wash the chicken and lay out to dry. Add the chicken to the obgoosht after 1 hour
  4. Cut 2 potatoes into 1 inch cubes and shred half of another potato. After the bone marrow is cooking for 15 minutes, add the potatoes and beans/split peas.
  5. Cut 2-3 small holes in the dried limes, soak them in warm water for 30 mins, then add to obgoosht.

Give the obgoosht a good 2-3 hours to cook. Keep checking on it to make sure there’s enough water.
Rice And tahdig instructions:

  1. Rinse the rice to wash out any debris.
  2. Soak the rice in cold water with salt for an hour
  3. Drain the water, add to a pot and fill halfway with water. Add a little more salt, cover, put on high.
  4. Allow rice to boil for 3-4 minutes. Try a few pieces to make sure it’s cooked, then turn off. Drain the water. In the same pot add a couple tablespoons of water, a couple tablespoons of grape seed oil and then the rice. Turn stove on high. Once you see steam coming out of the pot, reduce to medium-low, cover pot with a towel or paper towel and then the lid and allow the rice to cook for 45 min-1 hr to get the tahdig.
