Baghali – Broad Beans

Broad beans or Baghali is commonly used around the world. It is also known as Fava beans.

Baghali can be used fresh, frozen or dried. I prefer to use the frozen beans, and always have a couple of packets in the freezer.

Baghali Polo is a popular Iranian rice dish with dill.

If using the frozen beans, you will need to remove the lighter green out husk as shown in the pictures below. A little time consuming, but is well worth the effort.
