Herb Rice with Fried Herring Fish and Veggie Patty (🧐)/kookoo sabzi- This is the traditional dish for the first day of #Norouz and Spring. It took me several hours to go to Iranian market, get the herbs and fish, clean up, wash and chop and then preparing all the cooking at the same time and the table. And then termites #nomnomnom it all in 10 minutes.🐜🐜 😐.
Traditionally, we get together with our families, especially in grandparents’ house, and prepare these together. I had only my brother and sister so we did this on our own this year; hopefully next Norouz we will be with our whole family.😊🌸
Tried to pretend I was #Persian and made #tahdig for the first time. Guess I burned my burnt rice. Still delicious. Still beautiful. #rice#burnt#dinner @colbehus looks like I’m gonna need to come by soon
Our Nowruz feast! Sabzi Polo with tahdig (persian rice with herbs and a crispy crust), Mahi ba narenj (red snapper cooked in bitter orange), khoresh-e Kadoo (squash stew), and Kuku Sabzi (herb frittata). Of course there was bread and cheese and tea and tons of sweets! My people were the BEST and even looked up what to bring and what greetings to say. It was so wonderful and a great way to start the new year! Happy 1397! #nowruz#persianfood#tahdig#persian#haftsin#persiannewyear#1397#sabzipolo
Can you tahdig it?
@kaaliberti made this for a totally different use and totally different photoshoot, but it was so pretty we had to give it its close up. Just in time for Nowruz, the Persian new year, yesterday!

Happy Nowruz! 💛the traditional Zoroastrian festival which has been celebrated by Iranians for over 3,000 years. Nowruz starts at the exact moment of the vernal equinox, commencing the start of Spring. The name comes from the Avestan meaning “New Day.” #Nowruz#springtime
