    Gay Gilmore's Note:

    A Persian recipe by Israeli chef Hanoch Bar Shalom. Kosher for Passover only for Sephardim. Bar Shalom suggests making a double amount of the currant mixture to save for garnishing salads, meats and poultry. That part of the recipe is kosher for everybody.

      Love this recipe! If you are looking for a flavorful rice dish, look no further. The seasoned currants really make this dish stand out. The mint was also a wonderful addition. The fresh herbs are a must for this recipe. I am not a big fan of dill, so I only used 1 Tablespoon; next time I would go with the 3 Tablespoons as indicated. Ultra Fab! Happy Birthday Gay!
