Sabzi Polo (Green Herb Rice)
Sabzi polo is a classic Nowruz (Iranian New Year) dish brimming with fragrant fresh green herbs and the scent of spring. A fragrant, long-grain basmati rice is optimal here. This version is prepared with a crispy, saffron-tinged lavash tahdig that also acts as a barrier so the herbs don't burn at the bottom of the pot. Enjoy sabzi polo with mahi sorkh shodeh (fried fish), and a side of smoked fish.
