Rice with Dried Fruits شیرین پلو اردبیلی

Today I am going to introduce one of Iranian rice dishes. Iranian cuisine has dozens of types of rice/ pilaf/ پلو / pliov/polo dishes. In Iranian cuisine, rice is not sticky like Japanese style. Pilaf is usually served by it’s own or along with stew.The following recipe is called Shirin polow/sweet rice شیرین پلو which it comes from Azerbaijani part of Iran.

In this dish, we use dried fruits such as dates, apricots and raisins. It has a gorgeous mild sweet savoury taste and however it is sweet but is not a dessert and consider as main course.
Shirin polow شیرین پلو literally means sweet rice. Shirin polow, is served on its own or served with beef or lamb and tahdig ته دیگ -گازماق/crispy crust from bottom of the pot It is a simple dish but at the same time like a gem is stunning. You would just surprise with this fruity rice.

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. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
