|Khoreshte Aloo Esfenaj|
One key step to consider is visiting your local Persian or Mediterranean Market to purchase dried Persian plums which is not pitted, yet peeled. These plums tend to be sweet and sour and slightly more firm than dried plums sold in most other markets. Dried prunes can be a substitute if you can't find dried Persian plums; however, the flavor profile is largely altered.
Khoreshte Aloo Esfenaj is high in fiber and iron. This earthy sweet and sour stew is rich in flavor which stems from the use of spinach, and fruity and floral with a sweet tang with the use of plums. Served with Persian rice, I hope these stews will soon become your favorites.
