Javaher Polo Recipe Persian Jeweled Rice 

Morasa Polo or Javaher Polo is one of the most delicious, beautiful, and formal dishes that you can serve in ceremonies. You do not need a lot of time to prepare this dish but you have to use a wide variety of ingredient.

Javaher Polo Recipe with Chicken

Ingredients (for 6 to 7 people):

  • Rice: 5 Cups
  • Chicken Fillet: 500 g
  •  Butter: 150 g
  •  Orange Peel Slices (sweetened): 2 Cups
  •  Pistachio Slices: 1 Cup
  •  Almond Slices: 1 Cup
  •  Barberry: ½ Cup
  •  Brewed Saffron: 2 Tsp.
  •  Onion: 1
  •  Citric Acid: As needed
  •  Oil: As needed
  •  Sugar: 1 Tsp.
  •  Salt and Pepper: As needed

Instructions:

First prepare the rice like a regular Chelo and place it on the stove so it steams.

Meanwhile, in a suitable pan, add some butter and fry the onions in it, stir-fry the chicken fillets and spices and let the chicken cook with some water. Wash the barberries with cold water, and mix them with sugar.

Add a tablespoon of butter in another pan, add the barberry and sauté for a minute. Add the brewed saffron to the barberry as well.

To sweeten the orange peel, boil the slices four times each time for five minutes, pour them in a strainer and place in cold water for one hour. Next, for each cup of orange peel slices, add one cup of sugar and two cups of water.

You need to mix the water and sugar and place them on the heat. When the mix was boiling, add the slices and let them cook for 30 minutes on a gentle heat. Finally add the lime essence and remove it after a few seconds.

When the rice is completely ready and steamed, serve it in a suitable dish with the chicken decorate it with the nut slices, orange peel, and barberries.

Tip: You can soak the pistachio and almond slices in water and sugar so they have a better taste. Also, in the last 10 minute of steaming the rice, you can wrap the nut slices with some butter (separately) in a piece of aluminum foil and place it on the rice so they soften.

Javaher Polo Recipe with Ground Meat

Ingredients (for 4 to 5 people):

  • Rice: 4 Cups
  •  Ground Meat: 250 g
  •  Small Onions: 3
  •  Almond Slices: 4 Tbsp.
  •  Pistachio Slices: 4 Tbsp.
  •  Sour Orange Peel: 2 Tbsp. (sliced)
  •  Barberry: 3 Tbsp.
  •  Raisins: 2 Tbsp.
  •  Brewed Saffron: ½ Cup
  •  Salt, Black Pepper, and Turmeric: As needed
  •  Lime Juice: 1 Tbsp.
  •  Rose Water: 1 Tsp.

Instructions:

First, rinse the rice with water and soak. Then knead the ground meat with the two of the onions (grated) and spices. Form the mix into small meatballs and fry them in a pan with some oil. Then stir them with the remaining onion (diced) until they are golden.

After cooking and draining the rice, add the meatballs and fried onions between layers of rice and let it steam. If you want to have a more formal rice, you need to drain the rice sooner than the usual.

In the meantime, slice the sour orange peel and pour it in water and let them cook for a while. Remember to change the water several times to remove any bitterness completely.

Finally, after changing the water for 3 to 4 times, stir the slices with the lime juice and rose water. If you prefer sweet tastes, we can add a tablespoon of sugar too.

Next, wash the almonds and sauté with the barberry. Stir pistachios with raisins as well.

Finally, serve the rice in the dish and decorate it with a variety of slices and saffron rice. Remember that decorating this dish is very important. Nooshe Jan!

Air Fryer Taco Sticks

Hungry kids will love these easy Air Fryer Taco Sticks as an after school snack. Ready in about 20 minutes, and perfect to hold them off until dinner. Hard to believe we have rolled into August already. With August comes preparing for Back to School, school supplies, getting back on a schedule, meal planning and preparing snack ideas.

These Air Fryer Taco Sticks are a perfect afternoon snack for a hungry kid. They are super easy, can be filled the way your child likes or made differently for different tastes. You will be surprised at how delicious these are.

I use the crescent dough sheets because I find the flaky breading doesn’t overwhelm all the filling with a bread flavor.

Air Fryer Taco Sticks

The From our Dinner Table group is posting Back to School Recipes today.  We just finished our Back to School Treats week where I shared some other fun Back to School Treats: Almond Joy Cupcakes, Hot Caramel Apple Cream Drink and Peanut Butter and Jelly Cupcakes.

I was ready for some savory snacks, so these Air Fryer Taco Sticks were the perfect plan.

Air Fryer Taco Sticks

We’ve been making these since my kids were super little, just because they were a fun snack I made during my teaching days for my early ed class.

You can use a different type of dough, pizza dough works great, but please be aware that you may need to allow more time to cook or adjust recipe accordingly.

You can also use any kind of cheese you’d like. I make these for hungry teenagers, so they like to use pepper jack cheese and sometimes even like to add some sliced or chopped jalapeno to the mixture as well. So please know, you can make these any way you want to fit your taste.

Air Fryer Taco Sticks

Yield: 10 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Total Time: 17 minutes

Hungry kids will love these easy Air Fryer Taco Sticks as an after school snack. Ready in about 20 minutes, and perfect to hold them off until dinner.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 8oz. tube crescent dough sheets
  • 5 slices of cheese, halved
  • melted butter or olive oil
  • garlic powder

Instructions

  1. In a skillet on the stove, over medium heat, saute the onion, garlic, hamburger meat and taco seasoning until browned. Be sure and break the meat up into small pieces as you’re cooking. Drain fat. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. Lay out your crescent dough sheets and slice into 5 long strips. Then half the long strips into 5 more strips. You will have 10 strips. Use a rolling pin or smooth glass to roll out the dough a little.
  3. Scoop cooled taco mixture onto each dough sheet then top with a slice of cheese. Air Fryer Taco Sticks
  4. Fold sides of dough in creating a bread stick, pinching sides to keep ingredients in. Flip over and keep seam side down. Air Fryer Taco Sticks
  5. Brush the top of each stick generously with butter or olive oil and sprinkle garlic powder on top.
  6. Place gently in air fryer basket, seam side down.
  7. Set Air Fryer to 370 degrees and cook for 6-8 minutes. (all air fryers are a little different, so be sure to watch, and add time if the dough doesn’t seem done yet.) Once you have made these once, each time you will know what the time is to set them on. In my air fryer it’s about 6 minutes and they are perfect.

It’s a double dark 🍫 type of Fri-YAY 🤣💃🏻⁣ ⁣ Dark chocolate protein powder, 1 tsp raw cacao, cacao nibs, 1/2 small avocado, chia and unsweetened almond milk. ⁣ ⁣ Cacao vs. Cocoa: ⁣ ⁣ Cacao is made by cold-processing unroasted cacao beans or low heat processing. (Most bitter) ☝🏻 Bitter can mean better when it comes to phytochemicals. Benefits include:⁣ -increases insulin sensitivity ⁣ -rich in minerals like magnesium, calcium and zinc⁣ -mood booster ⁣ -most polyphenols (anthocyanidins and epicatechins) ⁣ ⁣ Cocoa powder is cacao that has been roasted at high temperatures. Least bitter. ⁣ ⁣ …just remember if the “a” comes first it means raw or less cooked and if the “o” comes first it means cooked. There isn’t any comparative research but we know heating can oxidize oils, decrease enzymes and lower antioxidants. When you can please use raw cacao and remember dairy inhibits antioxidant absorption so finding a “dairy free” chocolate will increase bioavailability of the good stuff. ⁣ ⁣ Happy Friday friends!
