The first time I had this dish was in Basra, Iraq. It's absolutely superb and the Persian version is pretty much the same. #Repost @dour_nist
In the southern coasts of Iran, Majboos is served as a very popular Arabic dish. It consists of chicken, meat, rice, lentils, onions, potatoes and dill. Also, it is seasoned with various spices. Parsian port, Hormozgan province.
محبوب ترین غذای هم وطنان عرب جنوب ایران و حاشیه خلیج فارس که با گوشت، ماهی، میگو و یا مرغ درست میشه، برنج، شوید، پیاز، سیب زمینی، لپه و ادویه مخصوص به اضافه هل، میخک و دارچین،
میهمان خانواده محترم احمدی در بندر پارسیان بودیم، دِی حسن با کمک بُوای حسن و بچه ها این مجبوس خوشمزه با مرغ رو آماده کردند، مرغ هم اول پخته بودند بعد سرخ کردند و روی چلو گذاشتند تا دم بکشه، خیلی عالی شده بود به خصوص عطر خاصی که به خاطر ادویه و هل و میخک و دارچین پیدا کرده بود.
راستی سیب زمینی و لپه خیس کرده هم جدا سرخ کردند برای تزئینات دور دیس.

Today's Brekkie: Mirzaghasemi
Traditional recipe from the North of Iran (Gilan)
Given to me by @simingolmona
3 large eggplants
3 cloves garlic, peeled, finely sliced
2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 tbs tomato paste
A little extra virgin olive oil
First char the eggplants until they are totally burnt on the outside over an open flame. Leave to cool enough so you can handle them, peel, throw away the burnt skin and keep the flesh. Roughly cut it or if you want a smoother texture in the dish, mash it.
Add a little olive oil to a hot fry pan, quickly stir fry the garlic for about 1 minute, then add the eggplant meat, tomatoes and tomato paste and mix well. Season with salt and pepper. Note: this dish needs a lot of salt! Roughly beat the two eggs with a fork, add some salt, then add to the rest, mix, then leave to simmer over low heat for 10 minutes. Recheck seasoning. Garnish with a sprig of parsley and serve.
This dish is generally served as an appetizer but it makes a terrific brekkie. This is also a dish that benefits from leaving it to come down to almost room temperature as the flavours intensify as it cools. #mirzaghasemi #eggplant #tomato #eggs #iraniancuisine #gilan #northiran #breakfast #food #instafood #buzzfeedfood #yeshuffposttaste #cookit #foodstagram #foodporn #breakfastporn #franzbreakfastrecipes #franzbreakfast #gilan #instabreakfast #huffposttaste #foodporn #breakfastporn #franzbreakfastrecipes#follow #followme
Here’s a pic of my brother Urban and his wife, Ruth, sitting on a bench in front of their farmhouse about 30km north-west of Boorowa in NSW. He unfortunately passed away a few years ago but he was one hell of a man. You don’t really see it in this picture but his wrists were the size of my thighs…. he was a huge man, with absolutely no fat, all muscle, from years of heavy labour on the land. He once lifted a 300kg steel safe all on his own, without the aid of a trolley or anything, and carried the bloody thing from one end of my cellar to the other. I was in awe of his physical strength and loved to spar with him on a mental level with no topic ever out of bounds.
I miss you mate!
