From a local source. This recipe yields a significant amount of rice therefore I cut the recipe in half. Reminder: *FRESH* herbs ONLY! I do not know how closely this rice dish resembles traditional Persian polow recipes. I made a very rare exception by cooking the cilantro and green onions as I much prefer them raw. If you want this recipe vegan you can substitute olive oil or similar oil but you may not get that cherished crust. Our menu tonight included the Persian rice, Easy Basturma Meatballs and Roasted Cauliflower With Harissa Sauce.
