Norouz is Near! A Sabzi Polo Public Service
March has crept up on us like it always does. Norouz, the Persian New Year, is but 19 days away. And what happens every year around this time is that start getting tons of visits here, from people around the world, borne of google searches for sabzi polo, a Persian dish of basmati rice steamed with 4 types of fresh herbs and one half of the traditional norouz meal (the other half is mahi, or fish).
So, let me make this easy for you, dear sabzi-polo-loving readers:
Here is my recipe for sabzi polo.
Here are some photos of sabzi polo.
And here are some thoughts on jumping over fire (it's relevant).
Spring is coming!
