Persian Meat and Rice Dish - (Aash-e Gojeh-Farangi)


4 servings

  • basmati or long-grain rice, 200 grams
  • herbs (parsley, mint, coriander, spring-onion ends), 1 kg
  • ground lamb or beef, 500 grams
  • split peas, 3 spoons
  • tomato paste, 5-6 spoons
  • marjoram, 2 spoons
  • mint, one spoon
  • onions, 4 large
  • cooking oil
  • salt
  • black pepper


Peel and slice two onions and fry them in oil in a large saucepan until slightly golden. Add 4-5 glasses of hot water, split-peas, salt and pepper and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes. Wash rice and add it to the water and vegetable. Cook for another 15-20 minutes.

Meanwhile, peel and grate two onions. Add them to the meat with salt and pepper and mix well. Shape into small balls and cook the balls in the saucepan with the vegetables.

Wash herbs, chop finely, add to the saucepan, and cook for another 15-20 minutes. Then add in tomato paste and marjoram (if fresh marjoram is used, it should be finely chopped). Mix well and cook for a few more minutes.

Fry mint in oil for a few minutes (if fresh mint is used, it should be finely chopped before frying). Add mint on top of the dish and serve.
