International Festival Fare

Saturday morning we went to the International Festival at the University of Memphis. I wasn't hungry when we got there but that changed mighty quickly.

The Islamic booth was serving some scrumptious goodies & I couldn't resist. La wasn't hungry either...until I picked up these tasty morsels. We ended up sharing the plate & practically licking it clean.

The chicken kabob was awesome, as was the rice & chick peas, but what really got our attention was the chutney & the sweet rice. The chutney was sweet & savory & the perfect compliment to the kabob. The sweet rice was full of fennel seeds, almonds & coconut. It was so good & we are definitely going to try & recreate this dish. We will let you know how it goes.

Until then we are searching for a Persian restaurant.

    it was so good, and for five bucks, a steal.
    I love love love the sweet rice. Do you have any experience cooking this, any recipes?
