Kuku Sabzi ~ Chicken Kebabs with Saffron Rice

Persian cuisine has a history steeped in herbs and spices, which plays a huge role in making it one of the most celebrated cuisines in the world. This meal starts with an omelette called kuku sabzi that, in typically Persian style, is stuffed with herbs (sabzi) and served with a beetroot yogurt (mast o laboo). Our main course features succulent marinated chicken subtly spiced with the Persian version of garam masala, advieh. On the side is fragrant saffron rice cooked with butter using a classic technique so that the base - a much fought-over delicacy called tahdeeg - becomes crisp while the top steams.
