Steaming makes the rice fluffy, but searing creates the crisp crust on the bottom of the pan. Known as the tahdig, it’s a signature component of Persian rice. Note: If you can’t find fresh or frozen sour cherries, use jarred sour cherries that are drained, rinsed, and patted dry with a paper towel.
