Sabzi ingredients for Persian recipes


In this post you will find a list of all the sabzi or Persian herbs (in farsi and english) you will need for each dish. You will find the recipes for these dishes in the ‘recipe’ section.

The sabzi should all be stemmed and roughly chopped. Use fresh herbs when possible but it’s fine to use a mixture of both fresh and dried sabzi. Always use the same measure of each unless otherwise stated. Herbs can bought fresh when in season, be prepared and then frozen for use later.

    1. You can buy dried tareh from most Iranian grocery stores. For sure there will be one near you. If I knew which part of London you are in, I can be more precise. Thanks 🙂
