Iranian Ghotab ~ Dolme with Shirazi Salad

5/5 from 1 Customers
Loading...
Ardabil is one of the most picturesque regions in Iran, with a melting pot of culinary influences from Azerbaijan, Turkey and Iran. Sule, our guest chef from the area who cooked with us through our connection with Bristol Refugee Rights, presented some of her favourite dishes from Ardabil that have become popular across Iran. One of them, which we're serving here as our starter, is ghotab - fried, filled pastries, perfect with a fiery coriander chutney. She also cooked us dolme (stuffed vegetables) along with decadent saffron rice, a sweet and sour yogurt sauce and a refreshing Shirazi salad. A proper Iranian feast!

Made this last night, absolutely lovely what a great fathers day prezzie this has turned out to be! Everything was so tasty, certainly impressed a couple of friends we invited, they now think I'm a chef! The spicing was spot on and we had clean plates all round. Never made a pasty before but the instructions made it easy, it's one of those meals that many parts can be made before hand and the mains can be put on while you eat the starters, perfect!!
