Mirza Ghasemi

Mirza Ghasemi with White Rice and Yogurt Sauce

Here’s a Persian/Iranian green and gold dish that can be a main dish or served as a sort of dip.  This dish is green and gold from eggplant and turmeric/scrambled egg, respectively.

Here’s a video recipe: “Mirza Ghasemi Traditional Style”

I also used this as a guide, but added onion and used olive oil and oregano:

I was introduced to this dish at a local restaurant with Iranian proprietors. I’ll need a little more practice to bring it up to their delicious level.
