Tart or sour cherries have become increasingly common in the U.S. The fresh cherries can be bought in July at local Iranian markets, while the dried ones are available throughout the year in most supermarkets. Quick and easy to prepare, this recipe makes a delicious vegetarian dish, but it’s also wonderful with roast chicken, a traditional dish in Iran (albalu polow ba jujeh), or chicken kababs.
