5/5 - (1 vote)

Meygoo polo is a flavorful seafood from southern provinces such as Hormozgan and Bushehr, located on the shores of the Persian Gulf. If you are a fan of seafood, I suggest Meygoo Polo. This is nourishing food because shrimp contains phosphorus, Omega-3 and protein. Meygoo polo combines rice, herbs, shrimp and hot spices. The people of southern Iran love spicy foods and use hot spices in most of their dishes. Follow Cookery Magazine for how to prepare this flavored seafood.
