adas polo shirazi, a journey into Persian tradition – Italian cuisine reinvented by Gordon Ramsay

adas polo shirazi, a journey into Persian tradition



The Persian rice with lentils and raisins, adas polo shirazi in the native language, originates in the southern region of Iran, with particular relevance in the city of Shiraz, famous for its history, poetry and, of course, its fine cuisine. This dish is a tribute to the goodness and simplicity of the basic ingredients, transforming them into a culinary delicacy that has stood the test of time.

Advice

This dish is a hymn to seasonality and conviviality. Traditionally, you can prepare it during celebrations and family gatherings, making it an ideal dish for parties and special occasions, on the coldest days, but also in the hottest periods. Preparation requires precision and attention to detail. Furthermore, you will need to carefully wash the brown basmati rice and remove excess starch, ensuring a perfect consistency. Pay attention to lentils, which require cooking al dente, retaining their distinctive structure and flavor. Soak the raisins well in advance, so that they regain strength and release all their sweetness. Finally, once you have finished cooking your Persian rice with lentils and raisins, turn off the heat and let it rest for at least 30 minutes. This will allow the flavors to blend and the rice to settle.
