    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...

    The 'curd' his talking about is called Kahsk, although this is a specialltiy ingredient, you don't necessarily need to buy this from a iranian shop, any middle eastern shop (such as turkish, Arabic) will do

    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.

    also with the confusion of noodles:

    '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.

    if you really need to use noodles, use medium egg noodles.

    hope this helps, feel free to ask futher questions!

    Nicely done instructable, It makes me want to make the recipe. But I need a little more information. 1)"Peas"- are chickpeas (garbanzo beans) not split peas? 2) "Beans"- 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 "dried vegetables"-What kind are they because I can't find them in the ingredient list.
    Note: I did find the Rashte and the Kashk at an online at 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.

    Yes , you should buy "pottage fiber" from Persian shops . Also you can use noodles instead that .
    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 !

    substitution of "sour cream" 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?

    What sort of "fiber" noodle replacement are we looking for? Spaghetti, Udon, Angle hair, egg noodle, ramen?

    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 .
    Thanks for your notification !
