On the menu was an authentic Iranian Macaroni. I have heard about this dish for years and have been waiting for it for eight months. I was now smiling from ear to ear.
In the kitchen so effortlessly and elegantly, Lady K was cooking and spicing the meat (lamb & beef mix), the pasta (only one special size from the Iranian store counts), the tomatoes, the tomato paste; until a really thick sauce was produced.
Now the art of layering the Iranian Macaroni started. A layer of oil, potato slices (Iranians and I love the crunchy potatoes under cooking), pasta, sauce, more pasta and more sauce.
Three musketeers anxiously awaited the meal to be served as it heated covered the Iranian way with a kitchen cloth under the lid. Our patience was extremely well rewarded once this beautiful, colourful, delicious, flavourful, crunchy, fascinating (did I mention delicious) and exotic pasta plate was served.
Lots of thanks lovely Lady K.
