Norouz: Sabzi polo all over the world

herbs for sabzi polo: dill, parsley, chives, fenugreek

Apparently the world is hungry for sabzi polo. I'm amazed to say that in the past few days, googlers searching for "sabzi polo recipe" have landed on this blog from countries as far and wide as (ready?) Canada, UK, Finland, Norway, Netherlands, Switzerland, Australia, UAE, France, Sweden, Germany, Ireland, Romania, Denmark, Spain, Saudi Arabia, Dutch Antilles, and Turkey (phew!). Served with fish alongside, sabzi polo, basmati rice with fresh herbs, is the traditional meal for Norouz, the Persian New Year,which happens to be today. It's a green, fresh dish that is the perfect way to ring in spring.

Let me make it easy for you, googlers:

Here is my sabzi polo recipe.
