    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 cup finely slivered orange peel
    • 2 medium carrots, peeled and cut into thin strips
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 cup dried barberries, cleaned and drained
    • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
    • 4 tablespoons grapeseed oil, divided
    • 1/2 cup raisins
    • 1 teaspoon persian advieh mixed spice (see Advieh)
    • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds
    • 2 tablespoons slivered pistachios
    • plain yogurt, drained, for garnish

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Begin by preparing Basmati Polow (Saffron Steamed Basmati Rice (Persian Polow)) and set aside.
    2. 2
      Place the slivered orange slices in a saucepan and cover with water.
    3. 3
      Bring to a boil, drain to remove bitter taste.
    4. 4
      Place the orange peel, carrots and sugar in a saucepan. Add 1 cup water, cover and simmer 15 minutes. Drain and set aside.
    5. 5
      Soak the barberries by placing them in a colander fitted inside a large bowl full of cold water. Soak 20 minutes.
    6. 6
      Remove colander from bowl, run berries under cold water. Drain and set aside.
    7. 7
      In a large non-stick pan over medium heat sautè the sliced onion in 2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil until the onions are translucent and soft.
    8. 8
      Add the drained barberries and raisins. Cook for *only* 2 minutes because barberries burn easily! Remove from heat; set aside.
    9. 9
      You, Dear cook, have two options for serving the polow, (assuming your rice is prepared):.
    10. 10
      Option 1: Mix the rice and barberry mixture with the orange peel mixture. Stir in the advieh and the nuts. Serve yogurt on side.
    11. 11
      Option 2: Layer the rice, barberry mixture and orange peel mixture. Sprinkle nuts on top. Serve yogurt on side.
    12. 12
      I prefer Option 2. Your choice!
    13. 13
      Cooking time includes preparing the saffron rice.

      Delicious rice dish that I don't think anyone would deny! I did use less orange peel which I grated on the larger grate of my box grater, I think next time I would exchange orange for lemon though as we prefer lemon flavour in main dishes. I used canola oil instead of grape seed oil, yellow raisins to give more of a contrast in colour and flavour wise in this I think they would go better than Thompson raisins. I used a modified version of Advieh, roasted pistachios which I shelled and chopped up a little in my small blender, Balkan (thick) yogurt stirred, I really recommend the yogurt with this, plus the rest. I chose to layer, which I would do again but next time I would put some barberries on top as well as the nuts as it was very colourful in the middle yet the top looked kind of plain. Made for NA*ME Tag! Come play!!
