How to Make Ash Doogh?

  • 1 cup rice 
  • 1 tablespoon fried garlic 
  • 2 tablespoons dried mint 
  • 2 tablespoons fried onion 
  • Salt and black pepper as needed


Step One

To prepare the delicious Ash Doogh, soak the chickpeas in a bowl for at least two hours, and cook them easier. Of course, it is better to soak chickpeas the night before and change the water several times to reduce swelling completely.

Step Two

After the chickpeas are soaked, rinse them with cold water and put them in a suitable pot. Add a few glasses of water to the pot and put it on medium heat until the chickpeas are cooked well. 

Step Three

Pour 2 glasses of water with half a teaspoon of salt into a small pot and heat until the water reaches the boiling point. Then, wash the rice, add it to the boiling water, and let it become soft. Now, add rice to the pot containing chickpeas.

Step Four

After washing, we chop the vegetables, which include parsley, dill, and leeks. Use parsley and dill in the same amount. Add them to the pot containing chickpeas and rice. If you want the vegetables to be more colorful during cooking, add a little salt to the pot before adding them to the other ingredients.
