Persian Khoresht with Sabzi Polow

Rated 5/5 from 32 Customer Reviews

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.

I love The Spidery. Their spices are very high quality and as fresh as can be. Their spice kits are a weekly treat for us; always something new and interesting and always easy to follow.

Took this on holiday with us to Norfolk, it made a really special meal. I think the Spicery should include rice spices in their spice products.

Easy to make contact and rectify my mistake with address. Spice packets look great, neat packaging that is practical- they'll stand up tidily in the cupboard. So pleased I found them, will be back!!

Every time I order from them it is there within a couple of days. If you need to contact them for any reason there is a real human being who is really helpful. It's a 10 out of 10 service



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!

Spicery Customer

Great, made it with mince beef rather than lamb and loved it

Prompt delivery. Good flavour and very easy to follow recipes. I like that all the ingredients to buy are easy to find and mainly things I buy anyway. A great way to add variety to our meals.

Delicious and different enough from Indian curries to feel original. The mint yoghurt is very refreshing although take care not to burn the mint.
