Torsh Tareh recipe, Persian sour fragrant herbs stew
Since I love northern dishes, we are here again with a sour and tasteful northern dish recipe. Do you like the sour taste of the dish? Torsh Tareh is a sour stew from Caspian regions, such as Gilan. Like most Persian stews, the main ingredient of Torsh Tareh is fragrant herbs( parsley, chives, mint, cilantro, and spinach). you may wonder why Persian people use aromatic herbs in their dishes because fresh herbs give a wonderful taste to dishes and are beneficial for health.
The sour taste of the Torsh Tareh is due to the Seville oranges (Ab Narenj in Persian), which makes this northern stew taste wonderful. Also, you can use unripe sour grape juice (Ab Ghooreh in Persian) or lime juice to create a tart flavor.
Since this stew is meatless, it is an ideal alternative for vegetarians. Other northern meatless dishes suitable for vegetarians are Baghali Ghatogh and Mirza Ghasemi. If you have never tried to make this Iranian sour stew, you can see a wonderful recipe in Cookery Magazine.
