Dried Persian shallots (musir) are available in Iranian markets, and well worth the effort it might take to locate them. I regard them like truffles because they grow wild in the foothills of the Zagros Mountains, and have to be found and dug up by dedicated artisans.


  1. Soak cups/135 g dried Persian shallots/musir in water for 4 to 24 hours in the fridge
