Jeweled Rice, or Javaher Polow is as delicious as it is beautiful. Named for its gemstone colours of gold (saffron, carrots and orange peel), emeralds (pistachios) and rubies (barberries), Jewelled rice is traditionally served at Persian wedding celebrations. Most notable at fist bite is the abundance of fragrance and flavour created by the fusion of basmati rice with saffron, orange and tart barberry, balanced with sweet carrots, and earthy flavours of pistachio and almond. This delicious dish is sure to become a staple on your table and is outstanding when paired with our Braised Persian Lamb Shank!
