Good To Go

Fragrant Rice, Kabul Style

October 02, 2002|Barbara Hansen

Zamarod challow is so laden with spinach, cilantro and dill that it deserves its Afghani name (sometimes spelled zamarrud chalau), which means emerald rice. The fresh, herbal flavor is backed up by the fragrance of basmati rice. Kabul Cuisine in Reseda mixes in a couple of pieces of grilled chicken to make the dish substantial.

Kabul Cuisine will pack most of its food to go. While waiting, browse in the market that occupies half the site. Along with spices, rose water, pomegranate syrup and other Middle Eastern essentials, there is a halal meat counter, and a display of jewelry, clothing and CDs.
