 A lot of our Northern Indian food has heavy Persian influences, kebabs, biryani, kormas - so its easy for many to just write it off as bland, when eating similar dishes . I for one think it's rich in its subtlety. Fewer ingredients and spices but no less robust in flavour. It had been a while since I got my hands on such incredible Iranian food. A big thank you to Chef Nasrin Karimi and to Mohit Balachandra of  The Moving Kitchen - for putting it all together!

This is what you missed:

Course by course... *All dishes were served with rice - either saffron, dill or lentil & orange peel rice.
