I would like to commission you to make Sholeh Zard.. I will even pay for it.. (send me the bill)………I tasted it as a child and never forgot the taste.. and haven’t tasted it again in almost 50 years. So if you make it… freeze it and overnight it to me I will prepay all the costs. It would be awesome to taste it the way you will make it. I believe you will make it the best way possible and it will taste out of this world. I see the love you put in to what you do… so it will be unforgettable. I will even video eating it.. LOL! …. The Best.

KShar November 6, 2010 at 2:11 am

Fred jon, I do not recommend freezing shole zard, I have not done it before, have you? I think that it will not taste the same after you defrost it. But i will take care of you…………..soon.

Salam K Shar,
One of my husband Rezas favorite dishes is Bagali Polo. I have made it several times and it can be much improved I think. I just had found recipes online for those prior.
Might you have a video or even just a recipe I can follow for this one please? His other all time MAN favorite is Koobideh. I have tried this and failed each time….

Appreciate your help, be of good cheer! Debra

KShar January 29, 2011 at 1:49 am

Hi Debra, Iam going to make sure you get the video for Baghli Polo, seeing you trying to cook all these differennt recipes motivates me so much, and I thank you for that. Now how do you want your baghali polo with lamb, beef or kitchen? I will try to release by the end of next month, we are all set with our weekly releases for few weeks as you know. But you will get it soon my friend. keep it cooking.

Thank you and keep up your fantastic work

SALAAM KSHAR
I ENJOYED WATCHING YOUR VIDEOS VERY MUCH. YOU DO A GREAT JOB.
I LOVE COOKING TOO. I WAS WONDERING IF YOU CAN INCORPERATE SOME GRILING INTO YOUR VEDIOS. I HAVE TRIED MAKING KOOBIDEH ON THE SKEWER: I USE LAMB AND CHUK 50/50 , WITH GRATED ONIONS AND SPICES, BUT IT COMES OUT A LITTLE HARD, ANY IDEAS HOW TO MAKE IT MORE TENDER WITHOUT MAKING IT FALL OFF THE SKEWER WHILE GRILLING?
ALOS IF YOU CAN SHOW US HOW TO MAKE FALOODEH ,THAT WOULD BE AWESOME.
THANX ALOT !

Reply

KShar May 15, 2011 at 11:45 pm

Hi luck, you are adding too much lamb and not enough onion. I personaly dont add lamb to my kobideh, I do beef, but use meat with a bit more fat. grate the onion, but dont mix the juice with the meat, try it and let me know. we are scheduling the summer events now and toward the mid july we will be cooking out door. Faloodeh and my special summer juices, ice cream and much much more is coming up. stay tuned. merci

Dear my friend
Thank you for your great vidios and your artistic fashion. I found lots of similarities with the spiration you have to look to the world with my own. I’m a literature student and doing my PhD in England and love the poetry. I do also love cooking which I have created a little sightation in facebook which you can check. while I was watching your Ash reshte I notice you also make your own Kashk. I do it as well but yet I doesnt taste similar with what I had in Tabriz. normally I cook the thick Dough with a pinch of salt. could you please let me know if you have other type of method in doing so? Thank you again.
With best wishes
Mahrokh

I had my staff do every thing to find your comment and I am glad that they could find it. I make the Kashk, by leaving them in some water over night and blend it the next day. Making it from scractch I have never done and I try to keep as simple as I can.

Could you please please make a video on how to make the rice from scratch with potato tahdig for those of us Armenians who can never make rice lol lol! , thanks so much ,will be waiting for your secrets and video. tx again

Hey man, I like your videos. I’m going to start cooking Persian food. I really like the stews. And it’s really not that complicated. It does take time though, that’s all.
Couple questions:
1) You keep using that red Saffron sauce. What is that? Just water and saffron?
2) I like the complex carbs. What kind of rice are you using. Basmati? Would that taydig rice style work with Brown rice? I like the complex carbs.

Arash July 9, 2011 at 2:22 pm

KShar:

I came here through the link in Iranian.com. This is the first time that I realized professional decoration at the level of high ranking restuarants could be applied in Persian food as well. I also like the way that you wear and present yourself though your accent is not a Persian accent, but it’s really attractive.

You have my words!

I will write in English now because I know that my farsi is a bit weak and I really want to get my message to you and what I mean. your side means a lot to me, it’s more than one food side, I feel appreciation and joy for your side and I’m so glad it exists. it has helped me in so many ways, both in cooking and to preserve and maintain my culture. it is a bit hard keeping touch with your own culture when you are alone and have no family because the family is the primary source of culture. but by including your site, I feel that I have made a new connection to the Persian world. and this is what you have given me, and it warms my heart really. I am almost daily here at your side and I have cooked everything you have put out. I look forward to new features and updates from you, I joined your membership yesterday also so this should be really exciting to follow.
again, many thanks for your reply.

KShar,
I came across your videos by chance on you tube while searching for a Khoresht Gheymeh recipe. I was exposed to the Iranian culture in my 20′s and experienced some wonderful persian cooking. As I am now in my late 30′s my cravings for some of those wonderful dishes has intensified. I am now starting to gather ingredients so i can make some of these dishes for my wife and family to try. I live in an area of the county that doesnt have any middle eastern stores for shopping. Do you have any suggestions for shopping for supplies online? I am gonna try Khoresht Gheymeh this weekend and Khoresht Karafs and Ghormeh Sabzi soon after. The one thing i really miss is Torshi (mixed vegtable) do you have recipe for this or a video? Also Mint Sharbat. I love your presentations and overall love of the food that you make…it really comes thru in your videos.

Hi,

Fabulous website. I love Persian food and this looks a great place to improve my skills..

In your video ‘noon va panir’ you add herbs to the feta cheese and walnut mixture. What herbs are these?

You must forgive but I am not Persian so I am not familiar with everything that you know.

Salam kshar-jaan,
having a persian colleague, I’ve visited Iran last march for the first time. Overwhelmed by the friendlyness of the open minded iranian people we learnt to love the persian food. Back in Germany for now two days we try to keep alive the feeling by cooking persian dishes – like your chicken tahchin. And it turned out to look and taste brilliant. My wife and me love to watch your videos – your gentle way of talking, the exact description of ingredients and preparing the food and your exquisite presentation – kheili kheili mamnoon for all of that. I write this over a glass of tea and some gaz we took with us from Esfahan :-)) . By the way: do you know how to make gaz? Is it possible to prepare this at home??

Shab bekheir,

Matthias

KShar November 1, 2011 at 12:43 am

How nice to read your comment Matthias jon. So glad that you enjoyed you trip to Iran . Yes sir it is possible but hard, I will try to get together a good receipe of mine for gaz for you. do you like the one with alamond or pastichios. keep it cooking and keep in touch my friend. shab bekheir.

Matthias jon, I did look over all my recipes, askeded around and there was no recipes that I could show you or teach you to make gaz at home. I am so sorry , will bring you one when i go to Iran. lol. I wanted so bad to do this for you.

Matthias Hackbart November 4, 2011 at 7:56 pm

kshar jaan,

thank you for your effort. Please do not think about it any more – we will have enough gaz next time in Tehran. You made our experiments with persian cuisine turn out to be so successful and delicious – we have to thank you very very much. It is nice to read so many positive comments about your work on these pages – hopefully this will make you go on creating many more videos.
Merci for all,

Matthias

Stacy A. November 1, 2011 at 4:56 pm

Would you consider demonstrating a dish called “Lamb Mughlai?” It’s my understanding that it is an Indian (South Asian) recipie that was inspired in part by Persian and Turkic chefs living in India during their Mughal period. I know that almonds are used to make the sauce.

If there is a Persian version (a khoresh?) of this recipie, that might be fun to learn about and to compare with the South Asian version.

I thank you.

I thank you.

Reply

Stacy A. November 3, 2011 at 9:35 pm

P.S.

Just a note to say that in addition to “Lamb Mughlai” there is a dish called “Shahi Korma.” Are these the same recipe?

I thank you again.

Reply

KShar November 5, 2011 at 1:36 am

Stacy, dear you are one of the kind. These dishe is from different tribes,from south of Iran and have changed through generations, each tribes do their own version and call it differently. My version is like this, I wrap the leg of lamb with a thin layer of lambs breast and roast it in the oven or over open fire. I cook date and roasted chop walnuts and almonds with honey to top the lamb with, This is a very complicated process and i also some times add some pomorante juice to the mixture. This dish is rich in fat and suger and also taste.

Robynn August 27, 2012 at 4:17 pm

If it’s the “berian” I’ve heard of, it’s a dish special to Esfahan. It has meat that is ground multiple times (some people use beef or lamb leg, plus lung meat, but I could never handle the lung part). I believe cinnamon is added to the mix also. Once the meat is ground and cooked, you serve it in fresh hot bread like a wrap on sandwich. I watched my husband and his friends make it one time, and I saw a couple restaurants in Esfahan that serve it. Sorry I couldn’t be more specific on the recipe!

I have a small request:
I have been to Iran for 1 month and I have been in to some many people house for dinner/lunch, ALL of them they used to serve a thick tomato sauce with the rice as a side dish and it was so lovely, could you please tell me how do you cook that and what are the ingredients

Thannks alot

Dear Suzan, when were you in iran? if it was summer time and that is when eggplant are in season and it could have been eggplant stew. we do not serve just tomato sauce with rice. if you give me more idea of what else was in it, may be i can help you.

I made Ghormeh Sabzi today. Since visiting your website and realising how easy it can be to cook Iranian dishes, I decided to make it once a week. I want to make the big Kooftehs. I think they are called Koofteh Sabzi, my daughter says it’s Koofteh Berenji. I don’t know, maybe they are both different!

Hi KShar, in the video where you cook Khoresht Gheymeh, you use for the potatos liquid saffron? Never seen liquid saffron before only “powdery” saffron. Might be a stupid question but I moved out recently and now I have to do my own cookings and I prefer Iranian dishes. Thank you for all the videos, manage to do pretty nice tahdig with your help. Keep up the good work!

Reply

KShar January 12, 2012 at 5:44 am

salam Arvin jan, powder saffron is mixed with hot water at ratio of one to five. five being the water, gives you liquid saffron. Thank you for your comment and keep it up. keep it cooking.

How long can you keep the liquid saffron in the fridge (or do you keep it room temperature)? It looks like you use a small glass jar with a lid.

Salam Kshar and thank you for all your cooking! It remained me the days almost 70 years ago when for several years I lived in Iran (Pahlevi, Resht, Gorgan, Teheran) with my parents… In looking some of your videos, I hoped to see how you cook a rice pilaf and make this delicious crust. Unfortunately, I could not find it. It was the most delicious meal – a serving of a pilaf with a piece of a crust on top… By the way, how do you call it in Farci – the rice pilaf and its crust?
Thanks again for a delicious site!

Thank you and so nice to get your comment. polo (rice) and tah-dig (crust). please note that rice pilaf is different than regular rice or basmati rice that i or we iranian make. please let me know if there is any thing i can help you with. I have a new DVD coming out soon that will show you different way to make rice with crust or tah-dig I should say. keep it cooking

Good Day Mr. KShar,
Today while searching in Google recipes of persian food, I found your website by chance and some of your videos I’ve watched I just loved them a lot. I must say that it’s very rare nowadays to find somebody who loves to share with other people without asking something in return. Watching your video is like watching a dear friend who shares his knowledge with you. I really appreciated it !!
Do you have by any chance a step-by-step video which teaches how to cook rice with tahdig in a real iranian way? And if possible with ordinary rice? As I am living in Brazil we unfortunately don’t have the facility to find good quality rice as for example Basmati or iranian rice.
I thank you in advance and wish you all the best and lots of success in your path.
Sincerely yours
Walter R Monadjemi

I’m a 24yrs old single leaving in Australia. I die for persian food as I was grew up there. I watched a few of your cooking videos and got up my chair and cooked a Kotlet which took me around 2.5hrs. But gotta say it was good. The way you instruct is very clear and easy to follow.
Id like to say what you are doing is great. Everyone should appreciate the time and effort you putting in this… I can understand that keeping up is not easy.
Glad to see still people are around who really care for our culture and more importantly for its future. You are definitely doing your part. I will be sharing this with all my young friends who dont know how to cook. Hopefully , we all can make a difference.

Hello Kshar !

First !…..what you are showing people is amazing ! Not just the food,but the philosophy of ” doing with what you have and making life something you can appreciate because you are creative with what you DO have ! ” Such a wonderful lesson to those who are younger !

Second: I would love some of the long shirts you wear, what are they called ? Tunics?
Where might I find something like that ?

Third: Thank you for exampling to others such wonderful taste and finesse as you cook ! Its a wonderful model for others. Its how you illustrate to present things so they are pretty, how you clean up as you go, and also illustrating how to pay attention to details, so that everything turns out right, not over cooked, not burned, etc. Its showing how to ” take care ” rather than being ” care less.”

Such a great model ! Thanks ! You are a guy with true class !

About Kabab Koobideh comment too long for youtube.

“Salam, Hi i will write this in english because it will be easier to understand.  I want to share a secret on a technique i use. The differens it will make in taste and handling and even in the looks is HUGHE! Ok here it goes, when youve finished mixing all of the ingredients in the ground beef and lamb you should heat up a teflon pan on the stove to very very low temperature. So low that you can hold your hand on it without burning yourself but. Ithen put in a chunk of your kabab mixture and massage it in the medium hot pan until it starts to change color from red to dark brown. If the pan gets to hot then lift it off the stove.  You will now already smell the wonderful kabab smell. Just remember. While doing this, the pan should not be too hot otherwise it will coock the meat. You still want the meat to be raw. Doing this will heat up the tiny fat depos inside the grounded meat and while massaging it in the pan , everything will mix and blend evenly. Doing this have many benefits, 1 preparing the ground beef on the skewer or sikh will be like a dream. 2 the kabab will never fall off and will coock evenly without getting those typically holes on it while coocking. 3 The kabab will smell and taste like the best Iranian kabab  in the world, it will just be so professional and out of this world. This technique is pretty advanced, it is a familiy secret and will take some practise to learn. Oh and one more thing. When your done with the ground beef after the heting n the pan. Put it in the fridge for a hour or 2. The fats will become solid and and making the actual kababs on he sikh will be a childs play. Cheers!”

Hi Kshar,

My name is Letizzia (from Australia) I am Italian and married to Iranian Karaj man for 12 years we have best relationship. I have beautiful family in Iran and I have been there 4 times and I love all the food and culture and also brought back some nice traditional items including instruments.

I am learning how to cook thanks to your u-tube videos last week I made subzi and Kookoo and it came out fantastic. I also love your advice and the way you present yourself your presentation is very clear and good to understand.

When I went last time to Iran my partner’s aunty made stuffed olives with pomegranate but I forgot to ask her for the receipe. I would like to know if it’s possible for you to do a video on stuffed olives with pomegranates.

One day I will learn farsi but I do know some words and understand basic conversation. I think if you put a video for learning farsi I will learn very quickly because your teaching method is fantastic.

I hope to hear from you soon and God bless you Kshar.

I just found your website yesterday, and I have really enjoyed seeing your tips and methods. I’ve already watched about 6-7 videos. I’ve been married to a wonderful man from Esfahan for 11 years, and have traveled to Iran many times. I know how to make rice/tadeeg and most of the basic dishes, but they have always been “good” rather than “super.” Well, thanks to you, my rice and tadeeg were “super” today! I look forward to incorporating your tricks into my next batches of ghormeh sabzi and fesenjoon. And I can’t wait to try lettuce tadeeg. I appreciate that you often give us “choices” in certain steps, rather than being rigid with the recipes. Thank you so much for your sharing! Best wishes…

Dear Bahador, thank you for your comment. warping up my new book ( from Persia to Tehrangeles ) is coming out for Norooz, it is not a cook book, for food, it is a cook book for mind. I am trying to show the hospitality, caring and loving part of the Iranian, what we are known for. make sure you get it.

Hello!!

Thank you so much for posting these wonderful videos. I have never once attempted to cook Persian food (and I am half Persian) so to make Ghormeh Sabzi last night was an amazing experience. It was so delicious, thank you so very much, your videos are so great! I have one request, can you please make a video on how to cook authentic Persian Gondi??

With warm wishes,
Cindy

a lovely woman from Rasht taught me rashti hooshhall,with maxigeroo.(sorry spel)she would dip her fingers in the bowl and drip the flour mixture from her fingers onto the pan like a pancake ,flip it and put this walnut mixture on it and roll it up.. it was heaven..

I don’t know how difficult is for you to company your cooking art with recipe so we would know how much of everything you are using by measurement each food need. For example how much salt, paper and so on. thanks a lot.

Reply

KShar February 24, 2013 at 12:31 am

salam Fatemeh khanoom, you have asked me few times for this, the reason i don’t say how much salt or pepper is because people taste is not the same, some like their food salty and some don’t like much salt, and that is why i say salt and pepper to taste. other ingredient i always mention.

Hello, I love your youtube videos and websitete! Very motivating. I’m half Iranian although not very in touch with my Persian side. So I’m trying to reconnect somehow by learning farsi and I’m looking to learn how to cook Persian cuisine. Do you have a video of you cooking mirza ghassemi by any chance? It’s my favourite dish!

Mr. Kshar – You are fantiastic. Thank you for all the work you have put into making these videos. I have left Iran 35 years ago and did not know anything about cooking. I started cooking a few years ago and “mastered” making Chelo-Kabab only. Recently, with your help, I have made some dishes that have helped me share Iranian cooking with some of my friends. It has made me pourd of my heritage. Keep up the great work you are doing. Very proud of you.

Dear KShar,

I have a Persian boyfriend and I need to seek his mom’s approval for marriage. She said to my boyfriend that I am the type of girl who might not be even able to cook food for him. I love him and his mom so I told myself I will do my best to learn Persian Cooking. I know it won’t be easy but with your website and all your shared knowledge and skills in Persian cooking, I think I should not worry anymore.

I love what you said about, the next time a food will be served to you THINK OF HOW MUCH LOVE and PASSION has been put together so you can have that food served on your table. I will keep that in mind, both when I am eating and cooking.

You are amazing and from today you are now on the list of my most favorite person in the whole world. May God bless you abundantly.

Best Regards,
JANICE

Dear Khar,
Quick question if I may: I have 7 different Persian cook books. Persian cook books always say when you make Sir Torshey (Pickled Garlic), you should not skin the individual garlic bulbs. They always tell you to keep the skin on. Please let me know why that is? It makes for messy eating to have to unwrap the skin when it comes time to eat the torshey. Is that because the garlic might become mushy and pastey? Did you ever make sir torshey without the skin? How did it come out after a year or so, if you did wait that long. Thank you so very much.
