A delicious tomato based lamb stew with eggplant. Great served with either rice or bread. This was one of the first Persian dishes I learnt to cook and would have to be the most popular Iranian dish in our household.
This dish is well known in Persian Cuisine. The delicious aroma of Gorme Sabzi cooking will fill the street. Many times I’ve had guests for dinner and when greeting them at the door they comment on the wafting aromas as they walked down the street.
This refreshing yoghurt drink, known as Doogh, is a must with Persian Kebab and rice, Chelow Kebab. Commercial versions of Doogh are becoming more readily available, but it is very easy to make and the ingredients are available in most kitchens. Perhaps an acquired taste to some Westerners but once appreciated it is a must at any Persian BBQ.
