My friend has kindly shared appetizing pictures of her Albaloo Polo. She followed this recipe ALBALOO POLO , except she added more saffron and homemade advieh (spice).MEATBALLS:
For the meatballs she mixed finely grated onions, ground beef, chickpea flour, salt, black pepper, and red chili flakes. and fried them. Then she put the cooked meat balls in the remaining cherry glaze prepared from the aforementioned Albaloo Polo recipe to soak up the sour cherry flavor.
For those who can’t get a hold of sour cherries, you can substitute the sour cherries from Sour Cherry Jam, although that tends to make it a bit sweeter. My suggestion would be to give the sour cherries from the jam a quick rinse in water before using.
