Albaaloo Polo Recipe – Rice With Sour Cherries & Meatballs

This dish is utterly divine. It is indulgent and sociable. Subtle in deliciousness due to the delicate spices used and none are so overpowering that it allows you to taste each spice individually. The rice becomes patchily stained by the juice of the sour cherries and the tadig (crust at the bottom of the pot) is fragrant and has a syrupy sweetness about it from the saffron and yoghurt. My husband tells me he can’t get enough of this meal and that the meatballs, that are delicately flavoured with turmeric, are like sweets!
