1/1 Photo of Persian Rice With Barberries (Zereshk Polow)
1 hr 10 mins
This is delicious rice! I adore the barberries in this. This is excellent served with Iranian Chicken With Turmeric, Saffron, and Lemon Juice or you can add some cooked chicken as you layer the rice. "There are a couple of different ways to make Zereshk Polow. Some folks layer the rice with zereshk (barberries) and steam them together while others simply make a chelow and add the zereshk on top. Personally, I am a fan of the first method as I think that the polow as a whole tastes better. With this said the zereshk changes color in the steaming process and goes from a gorgeous bright ruby red color to a dull brownish color. So at some point I came up with an idea where I hold on to a little bit of the zereshk and sprinkle it on top of the rice when it’s time to serve it."
