◇ Persian Rice with Dill leaves ◇

I love the drill and aroma while cooking Dill is a very good source of minerals, particularly calcium, The pepper and dill leaves add a subtle but exceptional flavor to the rice that it will be perfect for an extravagant side-dish. I liked dill leave and its aroma & look yummylicious!

Dill contains a big quantity of folic acid that helps the body make healthy new cells.

As to anti-bacterial properties of dill, it is as effective as garlic.
