Persian Food > Wiki


Persian cuisine most often includes the foods of Iran and Afghanistan. It is most famous for several distinct dish types, which include:
  • Kabab: grilled or cooked meats, either chicken, beef, lamb, or fish;
  • Khoresht: stews served with rice, often made with a meat item and vegetables or fruits;
  • Aash: thick soups made with beans, vegetables, and sometimes meats;
  • Pollo: white rice that is served with kababs or khoreshts, or that includes its own meats, fruits, or vegetables; and
  • Kookoo: vegetable omlettes.
Persian cuisine may vary extremely between regions and countries, but fundamentally, it includes foods of similar forms and textures that are altered with different spices, fruits, herbs, and other accoutrements. Persian cuisine also includes an extensive list of appetizers, desserts, and other recipes.
