Adas Polo Recipe – Lentil Rice – Persian Dish

Adas Polo Recipe – Lentil Rice – Persian Dish

Adas Polo Rezept auf DeutschOne of the easiest dishes in Persian cuisine is Adas Polo.  The primary ingredients in this dish are rice and (green) lentils.  The dish can be prepared with significant variations, as in this example, served with raisins and almonds.  My mom likes to prepare this dish with small ground beef or lamb meat balls.

I also love this dish with fresh herbs and some plain yogurt on the side.

I recommend preparing this dish in a non-stock pot.  This also encourages the formation of “Tadig” which is rice that fries on the bottom of the pot.

Here are the ingredients:

Instructions
  1. Cut onions into small cubes and pan fry with 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil until golden.
  2. Bring 2 cups of water to a boil adding salt in a non-stick pot. Once boiling, add lentils and allow to cook for 5 - 6 minutes.
  3. Add tumeric to onions, then sliced almonds. Reduce the temperature and allow to sit for a minute or two.
  4. Add rice to lentils and remainder of water and vegetable oil. Set on medium heat (3/5). Leave on for 10 - 15 minutes until water has completely evaporated.
  5. Add raisins to almonds and remove pot from heat completely.

  7. Ready to serve. This dish is frequently served with fresh herbs like parsley and radishes.
