The spices used in Persian cooking are quite subtle to enhance the flavours of the other ingredients rather than overpower. This fragrant Persian stew, or Khoresht, is flavoured with cinnamon, cumin, saffron and dried black lime. We’re serving it with a delicious mint and garlic butter-coated yogurt along with sabzi polow - sabzi means ‘green’ in Persian, which in this instance refers to the dried herbs in this lovely aromatic rice dish.

Remaking a favourite!

That's one of our old favourites too Seonad (in fact we've never taken it off the list of kits since we first made it)! Glad to hear you enjoy it so much!

5/5

Another delicious Spicery easy kit! The rice in particular was lovely.

This is a favourite at Spicery HQ too, so glad you enjoyed it!

Very tasty, great for a cold winters day.

wowww the mint and garlic butter-coated yogurt looks seriously creamy and delicious! We love the beautiful patterned crockery too- delightful!

5/5

Excellent flavours! We tried the vegetarian version with aubergines and found it sensational and really easy to prepare. Very recommended.

Great use of the humble aubergine! Happy spicing!

That's great! Happy spicing!

At last a wonderful mild dish with no screaming heat. We loved it. Could we have more MILD dishes please

That's great! Happy spicing!

5/5

The Burnt Mint Raita didn't add a lot but the aubergines were fantastic in this delicate meal. We added a kachumber Salad and that was a joy too. An absolute delight for a Friday Night. Thank You.

Yum - looks great!

5/5

This came in our Family Favourites bundle. It is hard to believe such amazing flavours came from a very easy kit to make! Everyone loved it, and the flavours stay with you long after the meal is done, leaving you wanting more. We will definitely be ordering more of these once they're back in stock. We used chicken this time, but we want to try it with aubergine.

Amazing, glad everyone really enjoyed this! Let us know how you get on using aubergine- happy spicing!

4/5

A really tasty recipe, I've never tried Persian cuisine before. I used lamb mince instead of chunks of lamb, and made meatballs, which worked really well with the dish. Plus I added in some aubergine for good measure. Delicious!! Thank you Spicery!

YUM this looks fantastic- great shout adding in the aubergine too!

4/5

Interesting flavours and we enjoyed it. The sauce didn’t really thicken for me and unfortunately we’re really struggling to get lamb. I am sure it would’ve been much better with the right meat! Still a tasty dinner and it was nice to try something different :o)

Glad you enjoyed this, everything looks great to us! Happy spicing!

My daughter bought me the family pack as a Christmas present because she knows I love cooking and traveling and I loved them, I'm now going to buy the adventure kits.

When you love to travel but can't go anywhere right now, we hope this dish transported you to Persia - at least just for a little while! We can't wait to see what you make with you adventurous kits!

5/5

This was simply stunning. I did the lamb version and can’t wait to try it veggie style next. The yoghurty part was outstanding - my wife was drinking it straight from the bowl. Try it now!

Yum - great job, Andrew! We're so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed this elegant Persian stew. Happy spicing!

5/5

This one was just delicious and made the kitchen smell amazing!

Thanks for your lovely review, Rose - we're so pleased to hear how much you loved both the flavour and fragrance of this subtly spiced Persian dish!

5/5

We often cook Persian recipes from scrstch - this kit achieves a lovely authentic-tasting meal - we couldnt decide between lamb or aubergine, so had both - and was delicious.

Why choose one when you can have both? We're so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed this fragrant Persian stew!

I'm now a complete convert and regularly order. The recipes are so easy, you just need half a dozen ingredients that I usually have anyway and they take about 20 mins to prepare. So easy and tasty. Highly recommend!
