There seems to be some misunderstanding, Seeming as i'm iranian/persian i feel like its my duty to step in and and resolve this confusion...<br> <br> The 'curd' his talking about is called <strong><a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kashk">Kahsk</a>, </strong>although this is a specialltiy ingredient, you don't&nbsp;necessarily need to buy this from a <em>iranian</em> shop, any middle eastern shop (such as turkish, Arabic) will do<br> <br> <br> Also DO NOT use sour cream, or any cream for that matter, it won't ruin it but it won't taste good at all.<br> <br> <br> also with the confusion of noodles:<br> <br> 'pottage fiber' is callled reshte, it pretty much as too be purchased from the stores metioned above, pasta or noodles, don't really do it.<br> <br> if you really need to use noodles, use medium egg noodles.<br> <br> hope this helps, feel free to ask futher questions!

nice.....خیلی کیف کردیم
Nicely done instructable, It makes me want to make the recipe. But I need a little more information. 1)&quot;Peas&quot;- are chickpeas (garbanzo beans) not split peas? 2) &quot;Beans&quot;- are they a specific kind or can I use any dried red bean? 3) In the picture of step3 there is a hand with orange &quot;dried vegetables&quot;-What kind are they because I can't find them in the ingredient list. <br>Note: I did find the Rashte and the Kashk at an online at efooddepot.com it was the only place that I found both items (I hope they are good). Because I live in a very small town this is probably where I'll have to get the supplies.
It's great to learn about different culture. Nice instructable.
still not completely understanding &quot;pottage fiber&quot; and &quot;curd&quot; <br>what exactly are they and do they need to be bought at persian specific stores? <br>very curious to know, i'm a cook by proffession
Yes , you should buy &quot;pottage fiber&quot; from Persian shops . Also you can use noodles instead that . <br>Curd is dense yogurt . Also you can buy it from Persian shop . It isn't very important for you . You can don't use it . As you like !<br>
substitution of &quot;sour cream&quot; for those of us more than 50 miles from a Persian Shop? Round these parts, we have only Generic(American), Indian, Asian, and Mexican stores. Or is sour cream too thick, with crema fresca being a better choice?<br><br>What sort of &quot;fiber&quot; noodle replacement are we looking for? Spaghetti, Udon, Angle hair, egg noodle, ramen?

This looks really tasty. In step 5 are you adding noodles, is that what you mean by fiber?
Pottage fiber is different . I know you can't find that fiber in US . So I change the word to noodles ! Noodles haven't different taste and you can use it instead pottage fiber . <br>Thanks for your notification !
There are some Persian stores around where I live, maybe I can find some there.Thanks.
Wow, that looks like some really yummy food! It's great to see food from all over the world on instructables...<br><br>If you want some help with translations in your instructable, I and others would be happy to help, just post in this forum:<br>https://www.instructables.com/community?categoryGroup=forums&amp;category=esl
