Barberry Recipes (or, Chitra Recipes)

Here’s a roundup of a handful of barberry recipes. This fruit features most commonly in Persian recipes, be it sprinkled in a rice dish or as the main flavor in sherbet. If interested in cooking with barberries, consider using recipes calling for cranberries or pomegranate seeds and substituting this small, tangy berry in its place. 


Barberry, or chitra, has a tangy flavor with a sweetness stronger than the zesty cranberry's. Many flavors pair well with this small fruit, including bright, sharp notes and subdued earthy tones.
