To help us learn more about Persian (a.k.a. Iranian) food, we turned to culinary authority Najmieh Batmanglij. In addition to insight on Persian culinary traditions, she provided us with recipes from her book New Food of Life.
What to buy:
Pomegranate juice has exploded in popularity and is now available at most high-end grocery stores and online.
You may substitute pomegranate juice or paste with 1 cup liquid tamarind.
