Barbari Bread

barbari bread

This is "naan e barbari", one of the breads that is available fresh all over Tehran and Iran. It's crisp and golden on the outside and soft and white in between the crusts. Usually quite generously salted, barbari is tasty enough to eat on its own and one of the perks of going to buy it is the right to eat it piping hot on the way home. You can see from the picture that I've helped myself to the "head" of the loaf on the left.

It's often said that no matter how hard hard up you are for cash, you can always treat yourself (and/or a friend) to "barbari o nushabe", that is, barbari bread and fizzy drinks.
