Beetroot borani is a lovely Iranian yogurt based vegetable dish. We’ve married our beets with a little hit of orange and a smattering of caraway seeds, which really lifts the earthy flavour of this deep and vibrant dish. The salty feta and squeeze of lemon cuts through the rich smoky and sweet flavour of the beets.
Borani is a great addition to a summer’s BBQ alongside grilled meat and flatbreads, or can be served as a delightful autumnal starter paired with smoked duck, pickles and homemade crackers. For a lighter version of borani, try using golden beetroot instead.
