I came up with this recipe for an ex-employer from Iran. He loved his homeland's food and missed it. I also have a pension for Persian food and adore basmati rice. This is my blend of some of my favorite Persian flavors. If you cannot find the Advieh Pollow or Koubideh Spice, which are typically found in the Persian markets, I strongly suggest that you order them from www.SpiceBazaar.com. They mix the spices to order and they are very fresh!
