Recipes for suggested accompaniments:

Yoghurt is also a popular meal accompaniment in the Iranian cuisine and for our recipe we have also added it with salad and Indian bread.

–    Beat your yoghurt till it has good consistency.
–    Mix the baby spinach mixture with the yoghurt and add salt for taste.


Pickled Beetroot:
–    Take whole beetroot and it’s liquid from tin, pour into small pot and add water until it covers the top of the beets.
–    Then Boil. Once boiled, drain beet water into a wok and set beetroots aside (do not throw the water away).
–    In the wok, boil the beetroot water, about 1 1/2 teaspoons of white vinegar and a pinch of sugar and salt, bring to a boil.

–    Slice strips and place them one on top of the other and roll into a circle (similar to that of a Swiss roll).
