Kitchen World Tour Day 74: Iran
Cooking Iranian was a delight. Kuku Sabzi is a herbed frittata containing an enormous amount of green herbs. It was very flavoursome.
Tah Dig is a Persian rice dish full of saffron and baked until it has a solid crust. It also has a layer of a sour fruit in it called barberries. Never used them before but I liked them a lot.
Finally Torshi ‘Ye Bademjoon is an eggplant pickle. Kas loves eggplant so this was right up her alley. Vegetarian and Persian is a cuisine which I need to experiment with some more. Quite different to anything I have tried before.
