The fava beans are usually sprinkled with vinegar and seasoned with golpar, angelica powder. Are you skillful enough to peel the beans? Use your teeth to peel back the black line, squeeze the bottom to pop the soft center out, and discard the thick skin. You see lots of people in winter that huddle together for warmth and share a bowl of fava beans. Join them and enjoy chatting with hospitable locals.
Maybe you’ve tried some of creative serving suggestions for corn. Once you try corn the Iranian way, you won’t want it any other way. Balal is grilled over a fire and then soaked in a bucket of salty water for a few seconds. The lukewarm salty water and hot corn cause the water to evaporate quickly, leaving behind salty goodness around the blackened corn. This appetizing snack is served during four seasons commonly in winter.
