Persian Recipes

Persian cuisine is a rich mixture of flavours and textures, with herbs and fruits combined with meats, vegetables and nuts, often on beds of rice. These dishes are characterised by tastes of saffron, cardamom, lime and turmeric. Khoresh-e Fesenjan with Persian Saffron Rice is a rich and aromatic pomegranate and walnut stew while the Zereshk Polo is a chicken dish with rice, barberries and pistachios, or try Sabzi Polo, the traditional Persian New Year’s dish.
