On a Persian food table you will always have vegetable or herbs salad in Summer time and different types of pickles ترشی in Winter season. These salads are a combination of fresh fruits or vegetables that usually housewives buy straight fresh from vegetable grocery.
In my country Iran , when we you go to sabzi forooshi (store with fresh herbs) you can find fresh herb bundles and you can smell aroma of these beautiful herbs. In these stores, there is huge selection of green herbs (Sabzi khordanسبزی خوردن) including: chives تره , radish.تربچه scallion پیازچه- mint نعنا, dillشوید , basilریحان . parsleyجعفری , coriander گشنیز – tarragon ترخون and watercress شاهی. Shopkeepers always ask you, how many kilogram herbs you want??
The best way to clean and wash these fresh herbs is: to drunk the herbs in a bowl full of cold water , for 10 minutes or rinse herbs under cool running water until thoroughly clean. Then drain in a colander. You can keep them fresh for a few days in the fridge by wrapping herbs in a cotton towel.
You can serve these beautiful green and aromatic herbs in a basket or platter. You can have all these herbs or just get herbs you fancy, I am sure once you eat, you will not stop and eat more and more specially when you serve herbs with warm and fresh breads and feta cheese :).
These herbs are enough flavoured that no need to any dressing.
Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine.
I am a photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, ....
I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother.
Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them.
All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them.
So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :)
