Please help me buy Iranian sohan in the UK
November 6, 2011 2:59 PM   Subscribe

Now that I have tasted the Sohan brought back as a gift from a trip to Iran I must have more! But where can I buy it in the UK? Help please!

Its the most delicious sweet - crisp, buttery & flavoured with cardamom & pistachios. It was cut into diamond shapes & in a tin. Here is a picture Sohan picture
The one I had was probably from Esfahan. It was soooo wonderful that I want more but my google-fu has failed. Please help me to buy some more, preferably by mail order. I'm in the UK.

Your best bet is going to be off the Edgware Road in London (relevant forum discussion here), but you could give Persepolis in Peckham a ring, as they say that they do mail order.

If you cook at all, it doesn't seem like a difficult recipe.

Indian Soan Papdi is very similar and yummy.

Though it's not as crispy.
