    Discover an ancient, fascinating cuisine at Sydney's Persian restaurants

    You may be familiar with jewelled pilafs studded with almonds and pomegranates and spiced kebabs, but Sydney's Persian restaurants serve up a delectable array of dishes which will enthral all foodies. Iranian cuisine is rich, sensual and aromatic, focusing on ingredients such as cardamom, saffron, raisins, cumin and rose water. Its fragrant, complex dishes inspire food writers in a way that few cuisines can claim to and its history stretches back throughout the ages. What's more, this style of cooking has influenced other international cuisines, such as Indian - which is often based on original 'Mughal' cuisine.

    What sort of foods can you enjoy in Sydney's Persian restaurants?

    Gourmets beginning their Iranian food journey must get to know fesenjan, or walnut or pomegranate stew, made with chicken or duck and traditionally served at weddings. Bademjan, or tomato and eggplant stew is another rich, red classic dish which should traditionally be covered in a sheen of oil to show that it has been simmered for long enough. Try zereshk polo, or barberry rice, a sour, tart side dish which is cooked with butter and other ingredients such as orange and tamarind to soften the flavour. Persian restaurants in Sydney will also serve the classic herb and cheese side dish of sabzi khordan, which combines fresh and edible herbs as palette cleansers between courses, served with fresh cheese and flatbread. For dessert, try sholeh zard, or saffron rice pudding made with butter, almonds, pistachios and rose water.
