“Tadig” you say – you’ve never heard of it?  I hadn’t either until I met some adventuresome Israelis. You can spell it tahdig, tah-dig, or tadeeg.  But what it means is YUM.  Although if you want to get technical “tah” in Persian means under and “deeg” means pot.  Tadig refers to the process of making something crunchy at the bottom of the pot – most often it is the rice itself, but when you want to make special dishes you can put potatoes, onions, broken up matzah (over Pesach, or all year round), triangles of pita, lettuce, and I’ve even heard of making pasta this way.
