2. Pass the Polow

Polow (or pulao) is never complete without some barberry (zereshk or daruhaldi).

You’re the zereshk (barberry) to my polow (rice). #art #artist #artistsoninstagram #digitalart #illustration #drawing #draw #friendship #love #persian #irani #iranian #zereshkpolo

3. Do you dare eat a falafel without drowning it in hummus?

4. Got Chai?

Shafi spells chai as “choi” because that is how her grandfather pronounces the drink with his heavy Persian accent.

5. Haldi wala Doodh: Mom Recommended

To stay healthy you always need your doodh (milk) with a little haldi, no?

6. We like it a Latte

Not exactly a desi drink or food like Shafi’s other posts, but this was too cute to pass up, because I like it a Latte, get it? GET IT?…. I think you got it.

7. Pizza Party Anyone?

This is one I’m sure you’ve heard before but this is pizza pun is just pun-tastic, right?
