Simple Dill Rice

Dinner times are always special and a  good time to spend  with family  and talk about the whole day with some delicious food on the table. Today's dish  is  simple and a very popular recipe of Persian Cuisine. Dill leaves are rich in Iron,  very good for digestion and low in calories. Dill leaves are used in soups, salads and also cooked with meat and fish. You can see my other recipe with dill, Dill paratha.  Here goes the recipe for Dill rice.......
