Baghali Polow With Saffron & Dill


Serves 8-10
RawSpiceBar's Saffron Threads
3 cups long grain basmati rice (white or brown)
1 lb frozen fava beans (or 2 lbs fresh)
3 tbsp yogurt
4 cups dill
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tbsp canola oil
2 1/2 tbsp sea salt


Baghali polow, a rice dish packed with fresh green dill and fava beans is a dish that often makes an appearance during Nowruz. Fresh, green herbs are a mark of spring the world over and this is no exception among any Nowruz celebration. Tahdig, a saffron spiked brown crust, that is created to the bottom of the rice, makes this dish extra special. This month, we've included a pinch of the most expensive spice in the world- saffron threads- in this month's spice box. A little bit goes a long way here- a few threads of this exquisitely flavored, delicate rice, is just enough to flavor this special rice dish.
