Good morning, Penny,

It is not as fearsome as it looks. The techique of making the chelo,
rice, is standard thoughout the Persian cuisine; what one puts into it
varies by occasion.

As you might guess, this rice dish is a spin-off of the Indian cuisine,
since rice is one of the most precious gifts from India to Persia.

I hope you enjoy it! As you can see, it's not exactly
spur-of-the-momentish, but would be lovely to make on a cold winter's

Stay warm and toasty:)


p.s. With our recent rain, spring is busting out all over, as they say:)
More rain today and this weekend should really give it a push.
