    “If you don’t have saffron...THEN DON’T MAKE IT” He sounded so sweet and understanding about the other ingredients if you didn’t have them BUT NO you have to have saffron (all stern). 😆😂

    As an Iranian I object!!! You can’t make tahchin without chicken. It’s like making spaghetti without meatballs.
    Oh and FYI, tahchin is traditionally made with Greek yogurt. To say that “it’s hard to stir” is just lazy. The saffron and eggs totally soften up the yogurt and you get a much richer texture and taste in the end.
    All in all not the best representation of this dish.

      Mmm at least put some eggplant in it if you skip the chicken. Also raisins are not needed.

    If I wanted to pair this dish with a protein, what would be a traditional choice? I was thinking merguez, maybe?

    If you want to turn it into a whole meal, just braise some chicken with onion and some garlic and then add the shredded chicken in the middle layer, preferably also add some of the chicken stock to the yogurt mixture and it becomes a fantastic dish. My wife actually made it for lunch today. But without the chicken, it is more like an amazing side dish that you can have instead of plain rice.
