Traditionally, many cook Ash Reshteh & Baghali Polo. I have demonstrated how to prepare both of these in previous videos on KSharTV. So I decided to yet again evoke your creativity by going outside the box and putting together something special for you. here is the video:

Nice job KShar! I had never thought of the sofreh as a method of carrying the dishes, cups and utensils, what a fantastic idea for a picinic setting.

Thanks ~ Debra
