It’s full of wonderful flavors such as saffron, turmeric and barberry and by far it’s one of the prettiest Iranian dishes, “Zereshk Polo Morgh” as is called in Iran is a rice dish usually made with saffron and barberries alongside a chicken and tomato stew. The barberries are a vibrant red and are sour to the taste, making the taste of this dish an interesting one.
Barberry is a common ingredient in Persian cuisine and it can be found at Middle Eastern markets. Since barberry has a sour taste, sugar is usually added to balance its taste, but it will not make the food sweet at all. However if you are interested in sweet foods, you can simply add more sugar, or if you prefer sour you can omit sugar from the ingredients.
