Recipe Description:

Of all the Iranian ways to cook rice, ‘polo’ makes the grandest statement, a showstopping centerpiece that testifies to the generous and ambitious cooking displayed on the Persian sofreh (tablecloth). ‘Adas’ (lentil) polo is the dish’s oldest form, probably developed soon after the arrival of rice into Iran from South Asia. It consists simply of rice and lentils mixed together, but polo is never simple; a good polo is infused with herbs and spices and layered with a spectrum of colourful ingredients, such as these juicy, savoury Mediterranean roast vegetables in a pomegranate glaze, garnished with parsley yoghurt and toasted almonds.
