The food we are talking about today is one of the most interesting local dishes in Iran, the color of which grabs everyone’s attention more than other features.
Iranian purple color food is one of the attractions for tourists visiting Iran’s South Khorasan Province.
In Birjand city, there is a purple color food named “Ghorout” with a special type of curds or Kashk in Persian.
Ingredients of the calcium-rich food are mixed with black curd, turning its color to purple upon cooking in cast-iron or copper cookware.
The culture of each nation and region is closely tied to the food and cuisine of that region.
Wherever we travel, a wide variety of local cuisine is quite revealing in terms of lifestyle and culture. Some of these foods have become more and more popular over time, and there are some that are not yet well-known. Ghorout as an intangible National Heritage is a case in point.
