HAVE FUN COOKING
A demonstration of what you can create with our rice
Traditionally, rice was present in Norther Iran cooking and in the houses of wealthy, while in the rest of the Country bread was the main element. Nowadays, the most appreciated varieties of rice thanks to their flavour are the ones cultivated in Northern Iran. The proposed recipe is Meigoo Polow, a dish cooked in Southern Iran.
Tahchin Morgh is a rice-based dish. It’s made of two parts: the lower layer, called Tahdig (Tah=lower + dig=pot), obtained by mixing chicken, saffron and the other ingredients and the upper layer made only of white rice. In Farsi, Tahchin means “spread at the bottom” and Morgh means “chicken”.
Paloo is the Kirgiz version of a dish that in the Central Asia is commonly called Plov. It’s made of pieces of meat (usually mutton or beef, sometimes chicken) fried in a big qazan (a cast iron cauldron) and mixed with fried chopped carrots, jiuicai (Chinese chive) and cooked rice. The dish is garnished with fried garlic cloves and red peppers. Shirin Paloo is a vegetarian dish where meat has been replaced with dried fruits, such as prunes, apricots and raisins.
Known as the “king of meals”, Palov employs vegetables, rice, meat and spices, and there are up to 200 varieties. The importance of this dish for the Tajik communities is summarized in the popular saying: “If you eat Oshi Palov at someone’s house, you have to respect him/her for 40 years.” Groups of men or women prepare it either in their home or in the tea houses, while they socialize, play music or sing. The knowledge bound to the practice is handed down from generation to generation in families and cooking schools.
