You are @ UC Berkeley? We recently moved to Montclair and would much appreciate your recommendations for restaurants serving Persian food in the Oakland/Berkeley area. Thanks much.

KShar April 17, 2012 at 2:55 am

Welcome to the area. I have a hard time recommending any restaurant, especially Persian one. I have not had any luck with them and that is why I hesitate to name any. so please forgive me for not giving any names. Try the internet and please let me know which one you liked. Thank you so

Salam KShar,

I just found your video’s and I love them. I have a question about the Saffron water. Could you please tell me how to make it, and how long you can keep it? Where are good places to buy Saffron? Do you buy a particular kind? Thank you so much. I am learning Farsi. You have a very beautiful culture, and you help it show through your video’s.

KShar April 18, 2012 at 11:56 pm

Thank you dear Paula, this is my goal to introduce my culture through my cooking. it is the mixture of hot water and saffron powder and you can keep it in refrigerator for almost a month. there is not a particular brand, they are all good, as long as you buy it from a reputable place.

I just finished watching the rice video. I want to understand more about why the rice is boiled uncovered. I have always cooked my rice covered and have gotten very good results. Does boiling it uncovered give the rice a different quality?

Thank you

KShar September 14, 2012 at 7:35 pm

Hi Dear Beverly, when you are cooking polo, you leave the cover off till when you get to steaming point. when you are cooking kate or dami. you leave the cover on. when you leave the cover on the rice cooks much faster and rice will not get the chance to grow length wise. I hope that i have answered your question. keep it cooking.
