Plied with Persian food...

Since I have been back in the Bay Area, my mother has been making all kinds of delicious Persian food, something I never get when I am at home in New Orleans.  I can always make it at home, but most recipes feed a small army!  Anyhow, I will enjoy it while I can.

The picture below is of Baghali Polo.  It's one of my favorite Persian rice dishes with small Lima beans, lots of fresh dill and a pinch of saffron mixed into some incredibly fantastic, scrumptiously nutty Basmati rice. My mom is a master of creating "tadiq" which is the crispy rice and potato that cooks to golden brown perfection  on the bottom of the pot.  Try not to be too jealous!
