Barberry rice with chicken (Zereshk Polo)


Zereshk Polo is one of the most traditional Persian dishes. The barberries, which are quite tart and bright in color, are layered within saffron basmati rice and succulent chicken breast. A delightful dance of sweet and sour; one of the pillars of Persian cooking. 

Serves 2—3

*Caramelized onion as garnish not included.

Ingredients: Chicken, basmati rice, barberry, caramelized onion, saffron, turmeric, tomato paste, canola oil & Noushe seasonings.
